Probabilities of flawlessness/defectiveness expected from an EC tester (Application No. 3).

Event Bayes’ ruleEvent probability

EC tested defective, but found flawless 0.1983
EC tested flawless, and found flawless 0.9987
EC tested flawless, but found defective 0.0013
EC tested defective, and found defective 0.8017

P(A/B′) + P(A′/B′) = P(A/B) + P(A′/B) = 1; P(A) = 0.04; P(A′) = 1 − 0.04 = 0.96.
