Probability of a randomly selected person being a man, given that they do not own a pet = $\frac{0.08}{0.14} = 0.5714$
Probability for a woman to be a pet owner = $\frac{0.45}{0.86} = 0.5232$
Probability that a randomly selected pet owner is a man = $\frac{0.41}{0.86} = 0.4767$

Conditional Probability
English and American spelling are rigour and rigor, respectively. A man staying at Al Rashid hotel writes this word, and a letter taken at random from his spelling is found to be a vowel. If 40 percent of the English-speaking men at the hotel are English and 60 percent are American, what is the probability that the writer is an Englishman?
