60% of the hockey players are from Eastern Canada and 40% are from Western Canada. 18% of the Eastern players and 12% of the Western players go on to play in the NHL. If a randomly chosen NHL player is selected, what is the probability that he is from Western Canada?
Your answer tells me that you are in the right direction, but there is something wrong with the expression:
because it evaluates to 9.259 > 1.
Think of a bag of 4 red and 6 blue marbles. The chances of drawing a red would be
Rework your expression and I am sure you'll get the right answer.
yes,y ou have it right
say there are 100 total
E in NHL = .18*60 = 10.8
W in NHL = .12*40 = 4.8
Total = 10.8+4.8 = 15.6
fraction W in total = 4.8/15.6
Oh, but you multiplied on the bottom instead of adding.
Whoops, a typo. I finally got one of these questions right :)
