0.84 = 84%

Step-by-step explanation:

First we need to find the total number of grocery shoppers.

If 112 bought a candy bar and 588 did not, the total number of grocery shoppers is:

588 + 112 = 700

Now, to calculate the percentage of grocery shoppers that didn’t buy a candy bar, we make a division between the number of grocery shoppers that didn’t buy a candy bar and the total number of grocery shoppers:

588 / 700 = 0.84 = 84%

Step-by-step explanation:

112 grocery shoppers bought a candy bar and 588 grocery shoppers did not.

Number of grocery shoppers that bought candy bar = 112

Number of grocery shoppers that did not buy candy bar= 588

Total number of grocery shoppers= 112+588 = 700

Percentage of shoppers did not buy a candy bar= 588/700 × 100

= 0.84 × 100

= 84%
