Probability is number of what you are looking to occur/total occurrences and that fraction times 100

- JoannaBlackwelder

So, we are looking for the probability of the defect.

What is the number of candles with a defect?

@JoannaBlackwelder 567

- JoannaBlackwelder

Right, and what is the total number of candles?

- anonymous

3076

- JoannaBlackwelder

Nice :-) So, can you plug that into the formula I gave?

- anonymous

So that would be 3076 * 567 * 100?

- JoannaBlackwelder

No, it is
(number of candles with a defect/total candles)*100

- anonymous

Ohh okay, so 567 / 3076 * 100 which is 18.4% ?

- JoannaBlackwelder

Yep :-)
