### Question

### Options

A) $$\frac{1}{5}$$

B) $$\frac{2}{25}$$

C) $$\frac{4}{15}$$

D) $$\frac{3}{25}$$

### Explanation:

$$\begin{array}{c|c} \text{colour of cars} & \text{Number (frequency)} \\ \hline yellow & 3 \\white & 4\\ red & 8\\ green & 2\\ blue & 6\\ black & 2\\ \hline & 25 \\ \hline\end{array}$$

Thus, the fraction of the total numbers that are yellow is $$\frac{3}{25}$$

## Dicussion (1)

• $$\begin{array}{c|c} \text{colour of cars} & \text{Number (frequency)} \\ \hline yellow & 3 \\white & 4\\ red & 8\\ green & 2\\ blue & 6\\ black & 2\\ \hline & 25 \\ \hline\end{array}$$
