A sample of 50 people in Harrisburg indicates that 10 people of them know the name of the mayor of their neighboring city. Out of 5, 500 Harrisburgh residents, how many would you expect to know the name of the mayor of the neighboring city?

10/50 = 20% = 0.2

5,500 * 0.2 = ?

Make a proportion 10/50= X/5,500 Then multiply 5500 by 10, after that divide it by 50 to get your answer which is X
