The proportion that receives a C is 0.30. The proportion that receives a D is 0.10. The proportion that receives an F is 0.10.

A B C D F
Number 56 74 60 9 1

The expected numbers of counts are for A,B,C,D,E:
Answer

  • statistics -

    Multiply each proportion by 200:

    A = 200 * .20 = ?
    B = 200 * .30 = ?
    C = 200 * .30 = ?
    D = 200 * .10 = ?
    E = 200 * .10 = ?

    I'll let you finish the calculations.

  • Correction -

    The last one should be F instead of E:

    F = 200 * .10 = ?

    Sorry for any confusion.
