Can please someone check my answer:
a)385 data loss incidents took place
b)110 million people were affected by personal data loss incidents
c)3% of all data loss incidents were caused by hard copy theft/loss
d)20% of all data loss incidents were caused by portable media theft/loss

services organisations, to the nearest whole number.
ii)The ratio of the number of people affected by data loss incidents caused by portable media theft/loss to the number of people affected by data loss incidents caused by hard copy theft/loss.
(iii) The percentage of all people affected by a personal data loss incident that involved Government ID numbe
A. 15% of 385 = 57.75 ~ 58
B. 3% of 385 = 11.55 ~ 12
C. 154:22
D. I'm not sure how to calculate?

I don't know why you have four answers, A,B,C, and D? Are you not answering i,ii, and iii ?
i) .15 * 385 = 57.75 = 58
ii) Ratio portable media theft : hard copy theft
20% : 3% = .20/.03 = 6.67
iii) 4.13 mil govern ID no.
Total people 110 mil (from b.)
4.13/110 = 3.75%

The second 2 answers are wrong.
(ii) percentage is not asked, the ratio is 7:1, 20% of 385=77 and 3% of 385=11.55 giving 77:11.55
(iii) 110x4.13/100 will give your answer

ii) Also it is asking for the ratio of people and not the data loss incidents so I think 385 is replaces with 110.
