# Relative frequency assesment method

Can you tell me if my calculations are right?  Thanks.

A hotel conducted a survey of its guests.​ Sixty-two surveys were completed. Based on the data from the​ survey, shown in the accompanying​ table, determine the following probabilities using the relative frequency  assessment method.

Relative frequency assessment method---> P(E1) = Number of times E1 occurs / N

a. Of two customers​ selected, what is the probability that both will be on a business​ trip?
A. 24+9+15+1+20+3+3+3+18/62+13+49+2+50+10+13+6+43

b. What is the probability that a customer will be on a business trip or will experience a hotel problem
during a stay at the​ hotel?
B. 24+9/62+13

c. What is the probability that a customer is strictly on business and has an​ in-state area code phone​ number?
C. 3/6

to find the probability of two events both occurring you multiply their individual probabilities.
to find the probability of either of two events occuring you add their individual probabilities.

both of the above statements assume the events are mutually exclusive.

I have no idea what you were attempting with your a, b, or c answers.

If it's strictly business then your probability of one person is the number of business people out of the total number of people.

If combination counts then the probability of one persion is the number business and combination people out of the total number of people.

So, what would those be?

Then, the odds of the second person would be one less than what the first was (because the first person "uses up" one event) but out of the same total.

Then you multiply those two together.
