lets say there are 1000 in the group so that we can forgo the decimals: 224 of them died of heart disease 333 1/3 had AT LEAST one parent with, that leaves us with 666 2/3 had NO parent with heart disease. 333 1/3 .327 ------- 109 people died of disease with AT LEAST one parent having it --------------------------------------- 224 -109 ------ 115 are left that died of heart disease in this scenario
