Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, 215/295 were honor roll students who "received the math class they requested" compared with only 125/205 who were not honor roll students. Working this out we can say that approx 73% of honor roll students got the math class they requested by comparison to just approx 61% of nonhonors students. Answer: Yes, it would seem they had an unfair advantage.
