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

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

  • JoannaBlackwelder
Right, and what is the total number of candles?

3076

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

So that would be 3076 * 567 * 100?
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
No, it is (number of candles with a defect/total candles)*100
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohh okay, so 567 / 3076 * 100 which is 18.4% ?
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
Yep :-)
