How can we solve this using a Venn diagaram?

12 out of 1000 women at age forty who participate in routine screening have breast cancer. 880 out of 1000 women with breast cancer will get positive mammographies. 90 out of 1000 women without breast cancer will also get positive mammographies. If 100 women in this age group undergo a routine screening, about what fraction of women with positive mammographies will actually have breast cancer?
