Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look at each park one at a time divide (number of violet butterflies)/(total number of butterflies) for each of the 4parks, then pick the one that gives you the biggest result

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Say I also had park E with the following data: ``` Violet # of Butterflies Total # of Butterflies Park \(\rm E\) 60 80 ``` then the fraction of purple butterflies to total butterflies would be: 60/80 (That, simplfies to 3/4  or as a decimal 0.75) To find the percentage multiply this fraction (this ratio of violet to the total), times 100. 0.75 • 100 = 75 So 75% of the butterflies in Park E are Violet.
