Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Adding the values in the frequency column, we get 862. Therefore there were 862 people in the survey. Waiting time (days) Probability 3 191/862 4 19/862 5 10/862 The probability that a randomly selected person from the population would wait more than 2 days is given by: \[\large P(more\ than\ 2\ days)=\frac{191}{862}+\frac{19}{862}+\frac{10}{862}=you\ can\ calculate\]
