27. In a marketing survey involving 910 randomly chosen people, it is found that 550 use brand P, 360 use brand Q, and 90 use both brands. How many people in the survey use brand Q and not brand P?

This is a typical case of a hypergeometric distribution where

Suppose

N=total population, (unknown)

n=sample size (48)

a=total number of tagged birds (37)

x=number (18) of tagged birds out of n (48)

Then approximately,

x/n = a/N

or

N=an/x = 37*48/18 = 99 (approximately).

b.

Q\P=Q-Q∩P=360-90=370

**Kati**, Monday, May 7, 2012 at 11:30pmThe first question is 98.6666666, but if it is for a test, put "approximately 99".

The second question's answer is 270.

**Anonymous**, Monday, May 21, 2012 at 12:30pmi think the second answer is 315 because not all 90 people use brand Q. so take 90 divide by 2 then subtract.+
