## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

P(E) = $\frac{no.\ of\ outcomes\ in\ favor}{Total\ no.\ of\ outcomes}$ The table in the book shows the distribution of people who live alone. We use the data to find the probability of a given outcome. We know that there are 29.3 million total outcomes. E: a woman in the 15–24 age range Favorable outcomes= {0.8} P(E) = $\frac{0.8}{29.3}$ =0.03
