in a typical year, about 46,000 deaths result from car accidents. How manyu deaths would result from car accidents in a typical 4 day period?

• Statistics -

if this is simple a question about changing units then I would multiply 4 by 360 and then divide 46000 by this multiple. which gives me aprrox. 32 deaths/year.

• Statistics -

There are 365 days in a year. You only want to know about 4 of these days.

4/365 * 46,000 = approx. 504
