% Estimated=(1000/150000) * 100%=0.67 %

% Defective = (2/250) * 100% = 0.8 %.

(0.8% /0.67%) * 100% = 119%.

119% - 100% = 19 %.

The actual % is about 19% higher than the estimated %.

Set up the proportion 150,000 over x= 250 over two. Cross multiply 150000 and two to get 300000. Set up the equation 300,000=250x. Divide both sides with 250 to get the answer.
