a) p = 352/700 = 0.5029

b) p = 348/700 = 0.4971

Step-by-step explanation:

A probability is the number of desired outcomes divided by the number of total outcomes.

There are 700 shoppers.

151 + 201 = 352 were happy with the service received.

133 + 215 = 348 were not happy with the service received.

(a) A shopper was happy with the service received.

352 happy out of 700

p = 352/700 = 0.5029

(b) A shopper was unhappy with the service received.

348 unhappy out of 700

p = 348/700 = 0.4971
