4.1.4

A project conducted by the Australian Federal Office of Road Safety asked people many
questions about their cars. One question was the reason that a person chooses a given
car, and that data is in table #4.1.4 ("Car preferences," 2013).
Table #4.1.4: Reason for Choosing a Car

Find the probability a person chooses a car for each of the given reasons.
Solution:
The total reasons for choosing a car is
=84+62+46+34+47+27
=300,
Total of reasons =300
Now we find the probability of reasons one by one
Probability of a person choosing a car for its safety feature is =84/300=0.28
Probability of a person choosing a car for its reliability is =62/300=0.206
Probability of a person choosing a car for its cost is =46/300=0.153
Probability of a person choosing a car for its performance is =34/300=0.113
Probability of a person choosing a car for its comfort =47/300=0.156
Probability of a person choosing a car for its look is =27/300=0.009
