b. Which concept of probability did you use to make this estimate?

Step 1 of 2

(a)

Suppose you select a student and observe his or her major.

We are asked to find the probability he or she is a management major.

Empirical Probability

The probability of an event happening is determined by observing what fraction of the time similar event happened in the past.

In terms of a formula:

=

The probability he or she is a management major is,

Hence the probability he or she is a management major is
