According to the U.S. census bureau, the total 2008 U.S. population was 303,824,640. The chart below summarizes the 2008 population for five U.S. States:
Missouri 5,911,605
Pennsylvania 12,448,279
Tennessee 6,214,888
Utah 2,736,424
Washington 6,549,224
What is the probability that a random selected U.S. resident did not live in Missouri?

• Math/Statistics -

lived in Missouri = 5,911,605/303,824,640 = .019

so did not live in Missouri = 1-.02 = .98
