  1. Out of a total of 421 people, of both sexes and three classifications of smoking habits, 135 were nonsmoking men. Therefore the probability is 135/421 = 0.3207

    This assumes that the sampling group was representative of the larger group of people they may have been drawn from.

  2. ops, 0.307 is not in the answer choices.

    they are:

    0.929
    0.798
    0.949
    0.941

    P.S. - Probability of getting a Man OR A Non-Smoker

  4. I misread the problem as man AND nonsmoker. You want man OR nonsmoker. Using the same method but more groups from the table, I get
    (204 + 187)/421 = 0.929
