$0.173$ and $0.228$

Work Step by Step

The total cases add up to 1728285 Burglary cases are 299351, the probability is $p=299351/1728285=0.173$ To calculate the probability that it was not for larceny/theft, we first find the probability that it was larceny/theft, $p=1334933/1728285=0.772$, the answer for not larceny/theft would be $1-0.772=0.228$
