Chapter 2 - Section 2.6 - Percent and Mixture Problem Solving - Exercise Set: 57


We would expect 361 graduation college students to rank flexible hours as their top priority in job benefits.

Work Step by Step

We know that the graduating class has 860 students and that a recent survey showed that 42% of graduating college students named flexible hours as their most desired employment benefit. To find the expected number of college graduates who rank flexible hours as their top priority you simply multiply the number of students in the class by the percentage showed in the survey. 860 $\times$ 0.42 = 361.2. The problem tells us to round to the nearest whole so we would expect 361 students to prioritize flexible hours.
