  • 1. Ages of Campers

    The graph shows the demographics of campers in the United States. Is a camper more likely to be younger than 18 years old or older than 44 years old? Explain your reasoning. (See Example 1 and Example 2.)

    • Worked-Out Solution

      From the graph, 29.2% of campers are 45+. To find the percent of campers younger than 18 years old, add the percents for the two age groups under 18-24. The percent of campers younger than 18 years old is

      So, a camper is more likely to be older than 44 years old because a larger percent of campers are older than 44 years old than are younger than 18 years old.

  • 3. Incomes of Campers

    The graph shows the demographics of campers in the United States. The median household income in the United States is about $50,000. On average, do campers earn more or less than the median household income? Explain your reasoning. (See Example 1 and Example 2.)

    • Worked-Out Solution

      Because the median household income in the United States is about $50,000, you know that about 50% of Americans earn more than $50,000 per year. To find the percent of campers who earn more than $50,000 per year, add the percents of campers with incomes of $50,000 or more.

      On average, campers earn more than the median household income because 65.1% of campers earn more than $50,000 while only 50% of the general population earns more than $50,000.

  • 5. Likelihood that a Person is a Camper

    The graph shows the demographics of campers in the United States. Can you use the graph to determine the likelihood that any random person participates in camping? Explain your reasoning. (See Example 1 and Example 2.)

    • Worked-Out Solution

      You cannot use the graph to determine the likelihood that any random person participates in camping because it does not tell you what percent of the general population participates in camping.
