Mr. Doodle’s grade distribution over the past 3 years for a course in college algebra is shown in the chart below.
Grade Number
A 45
B 180
C 110
D 95
F 65
I 5
If Jane plans to take a college algebra course with Mr. Doodle, determine the empirical probability that she receives at least a B. I think it's 1.7777 ??

Jen, think. How can 180/500 be more than one.

Math 
Ms. Sue
Jen!! 2.777 is also greater than one!

Math 
bobpursley
Prob of at least B is = prob of A +prob of B= (45+180)/totalofallgrades
