Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:0.19%Step-by-step explanation:To know what is the probability that a female who is less than 16 in involved in a driver fatality, we have to compare the cases of fatalities for females who are less than 16 years old, with the total cases of fatalities, commited by all kind of persons. Then, to know the proportion of the population of driver fatalities represented by female who are less than 16, we divide the amount of cases that happend under the characteristics mentioned (females <16) and the total amount of fatalities: $$\frac{100}{Total_{fatalities}} =\frac{100}{141+100+4970+2331+11009+....} =\frac{100}{52693}=0.0019=0.19\%$$, which is the probability that a randomly-selected driver fatality were commited by a females who is less than 16.
