High School Poll Homework Results

High School Poll Homework Results

Question -

A randomized poll was conducted at the high school. Of the 2500 students that were surveyed, 28 out of every 35 spend more than an hour each day on homework. Estimate the number of students who spend less than an hour each day on homework.

To estimate the number of students who spend less than an hour each day on homework, we first need to calculate the proportion of students who spend more than an hour on homework, based on the information provided in the poll.

28 out of every 35 students spend more than an hour on homework. So, the proportion of students who spend more than an hour on homework can be calculated as:

28/35 = 0.8

Therefore, we can estimate that 80% of the 2500 students surveyed, or:

0.8 x 2500 = 2000

students spend more than an hour each day on homework.

To estimate the number of students who spend less than an hour each day on homework, we can subtract the estimated number of students who spend more than an hour from the total number of students surveyed:

2500 - 2000 = 500

So, we can estimate that 500 students spend less than an hour each day on homework.
