The following graph represents the results of a survey, in which a random sample of adults in a certain country was asked if a certain action was morally wrong in general. Complete parts (a) through (c).
(a) What % of the respondents believe that the action is morally acceptable? (round to nearest whole number as needed)
(b) If there are 217 adults million adults in the country, how many believe that the action is morally wrong? (round to nearest million as needed)
(c) If a polling organization claimed that the results of the survey indicate that 9% of adults believe that the action is acceptable in certain situations, would you say this statement is descriptive or inferential? Why?
A) 72% of respondents believe that the action is morally acceptable
B) 19% believes that it's morally wrong,
So, the number of people who believe that it's morally wrong
= 0.19 x 217
= 41 million
C) The statement is inferential
It is inferential because they are using a sample to conclude.
