A used-car lot has 120 vehicles for sale. A sample of 15 of these vehicles finds that 6 of them have previously been in an accident. 

What is the best estimate of the percent of the used-car lot's vehicles that have previously been in an accident?

Enter your answer in the box.

6 out of every 15 have been in an accident

 

how many 15's are there in 120?       Eight

     8 x  6 = 48  of 120   might have been in anaccident

Hey there, Guest!

 

120 divided by 15 = 8

8 times 5 = 48

\(\frac{48}{120}\) equals 40%

40% of the cars were previously damaged in an accident.

(120 ÷ 15) ÷ 6 = 40%.

 

Hope this helped! :)
