## What is the probability someone is male or drives a sports car?

These fractions and decimals represent the probability that each cell of the table will occur. For example, the probability of choosing a male who prefers sports cars is 39/240 or 16%. The probability of choosing a male is 60/180 = 25%.

## How do you read a two-way frequency table?

The counts are placed in the center of the table. Totals appear at the end of each row and column. A sum of all counts (a grand total) is placed at the bottom right. The totals in the right column and bottom row are called marginal distributions (excluding the grand total).

## What are 2 way frequency tables?

A two-way table is one way to display frequencies for two different categories collected from a single group of people. One category is represented by the rows and the other is represented by the columns.

## How do you solve for probability?

Divide the number of events by the number of possible outcomes.

- Determine a single event with a single outcome.
- Identify the total number of outcomes that can occur.
- Divide the number of events by the number of possible outcomes.
- Determine each event you will calculate.
- Calculate the probability of each event.

## What is two way table example?

Each cell tells us the number (or frequency) of students. For example, the 36 is in the male column and the prefers dogs row. This tells us that there are 36 males who preferred dogs in this dataset. Notice that there are two variables—gender and preference—this is where the two in two-way frequency table comes from.

## What is the difference between a two way frequency table and a two way relative frequency table?

When a two-way table displays percentages or ratios (called relative frequencies), instead of just frequency counts, the table is referred to as a two-way relative frequency table. These two-way tables can show relative frequencies for the whole table, for rows, or for columns.

## How do you interpret a relative frequency table?

How you do this:

- Count the total number of items. In this chart the total is 40.
- Divide the count (the frequency) by the total number. For example, 1/40 =. 025 or 3/40 =. 075.

## How do you turn a table into a percentage?

To convert the values to a percent:

- Highlight the desired cells.
- Right click them.
- Click the Format Cells option.
- Click the Number category.
- Then chose the percentage tab.

## How do you find the mean of a two way table?

It is easy to calculate the Mean: Add up all the numbers, then divide by how many numbers there are.

## How do you do a relative frequency table?

To find the relative frequencies, divide each frequency by the total number of students in the sample –in this case, 20. Relative frequencies can be written as fractions, percents, or decimals.

## What is a 3 way table?

The 3-way table shows how often the young people watch video, in three frequency categories, where the other categorical variables are sex and age. The three categorical variables forming the table are A: Frequency of watching videos. B: Age. C: Sex. The dimension of Table 3.1 is 1= 3, J = 3 and K = 2.

## What are the 3 ways of writing a probability?

A probability can be written as a ratio, a fraction, and a percent.

## What is a marginal frequency?

the sum of any one of the rows or columns in a data matrix.
