1. The prediction of the editor is not correct

Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1 :

Given,

Percentage of email that comes back undelivered = 3%

Number of email the editor sends out = 12181

Number of email predicted by the editor which is undelivered  = 433

Step 2 :

To compute the actual number of emails undelivered we need to compute 3% of the emails that is actually sent.

= 3% of 12181 = 0.03 * 12181 =  365.43 which is 366 rounded to the closest integer.

Step 3:

Hence we can conclude that the prediction of the editor is not correct as only 366 undelivered notices are received back as against his prediction of 433 notices.
