If there are 500 people employeed by the company, predict the number who would prefer an hour for lunch with no breaks

15/60 or 1/3 chose an hour lunch with no breaks
for in 500 people we would expect
1/3 of 500 or 167 to choose the above option

or, use 15/60 = 1/4 if you want a clser approximation! ...

Ha ha  algebra  Reiny, Monday, August 4, 2014 at 5:53pm

( I think 15/60 = 1/3 in nonmetric)
anyway...
Thank you Steve
