    210 of those 300 enter the class. 80% of the students that enter the class get good grades, 15% of the students that dont enter the class get good grades

    first you find how many students that arnt in the class and are getting gud grades so 90 x 15/100 = 27/2 feel sorry for the student that lost a limb :(

    haha xD well there 90 students not in the class, and only 15% of the 90 pass, so 90 x 15/100

    90 students are people that do not come to class, 15% of these students are students that do well in exams. therefore 90 x 15/100 = 27/2

    but it should be 168 + 27/2 because the number of students that didnt come to class and are getting gud grades are 27/2

    • 5 months ago
  32. HawkCrimson

    so 195/2 students pass and the probability of the teacher choosing one is 195/2 /300
