School A:

*Students who took the bus = 400

* Students who did not take the bus = 150

Total = 550

School B:

*Students who took the bus = 200

* Students who did not take the bus = 100

Total = 300

School C:

*Students who took the bus = 600

* Students who did not take the bus = 250

Total = 850

Calculate the probability that a randomly chosen student from this group of 850 students takes the bus and is from school A.

- probability -
**economyst**, Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 9:10amHow bout "from this group of 550+300+850=1700 students"??

Assumeing that you meant 1700 students, there are 400 from School A that took the bus. Ergo, P=400/1700 = 23.5%
