A study conducted by the Metro Housing Agency in a midwestern city revealed the information below concerning the age distribution of renters in the city. (Round your answers to four decimal places.)
Age Adult Population, % Group Who Are Renters, %
21-44 53 64
45-64 29 43
65 and over 18 62
(a) What is the probability that an adult selected at random from this population is a renter?
(b) If a renter is selected at random, what is the probability that he or she is in the 21-44 age bracket?
(c) If a renter is selected at random, what is the probability that he or she is 45 yr of age or older?
Confused by your third category of "%". % of what? It is not of the total number, since .64 + .43 + 62 ≠ 1.
