Example – Converting to a Relative Frequency Table
The results of a poll of 100 adults about their favorite sport are shown in the two – way table below. Some information is missing in the table.
Find the relative frequencies.
What percentage of the people chose golf?
Consider the Rufus King data from the previous lesson regarding after school activities:
Calculate the relative frequencies for each of the cells.
1. If a student were randomly selected from the students at the school, do you think the student selected would be a male or a female?
2. If a student were selected at random from school, do you think this student would student would be involved in an after‐school program? Explain your answer.
2. If a student were selected at random from school, do you think this be involved in an after‐school program? Explain your answer.
3. Why might females think they are more involved in after‐school activities than males? Explain your answer.

Calculate the relative frequencies for each of the cells.
1. Based on previous work with frequency tables, which cells in this table would represent the joint relative frequencies? Which cells in the relative frequency table would represent the marginal relative frequencies?
2. What is the joint relative frequency for females and “invisibility”? Interpret the meaning of this value.
3. What is the marginal relative frequency for “freeze time”? Interpret the meaning of this value. To Fly
