Homework Help: Word Problem.

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 1:00pm.

Describe the misuse or misinterpretation of
statistics that may be involved:

Over 60% of the people who fly to Normal, Illinois, do
so on American Airlines. Hence, most people prefer
American to any other airline.

I would think the statistic of 60% and it being on American Airlines makes the statement accurate. But, it isn't and I don't know why?
