An apple orchard's workers pick 12,500 apples in the month of October. A sample of 300 of these apples shows that 15 of them are damaged and bruised.

 

What is the best estimate of the percent of apples picked at the orchard in October that are bruised and damaged?

An estimated percentage woud be  15/300 x 100% = 5% of the apples are bruised/damaged.

 

(Out of 12,500 apples , that would be  12500x 5% = 12,500 x .05 = 625 apples damaged or bruised)

So, the correct answer is 5%, correct?
