Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Probability is all about division. Usually it's the number of "good" outcomes divided by the total number of outcomes. Here, you're asked for the probability that the home team wins. First off, how many "good" outcomes occurred in the sample space? (the games that were studied)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's right. And how many total outcomes were studied?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay ^^ So, you have 68 "good" outcomes and a total of 92. Probability is "good" outcomes divided by total outcomes Can you work it out from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it would be 68 divided by 92 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay. Almost there. What is that in percent? And not that I'm doubting your abilities of recollection, but just in case... To convert a decimal such as 0.252913 into percent, simply move the decimal point two places to the right, then affix a % sign. Like this... 0.252913 = 25.2913% ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But not because it's the "next best thing" Think about it. Don't you think 73.9 is far closer to 74 than it is to 73? You were doing so well leading up to the answer, but were slightly off in the last step. That's okay, though. It's best you make your mistakes here than on the actual tests... Well done :D
