Resolved: Why is the answer 0.17?
FOR If the frequency of a variable is 20 and its total frequency of all variables is 120, what is its relative frequency?
Thanks for reaching out!
To calculate the relative frequency of a variable, you divide the frequency of that specific variable by the total frequency of all variables. This gives you a proportion that represents how frequently this variable occurs relative to the entire dataset.
In our case we have the following:
Frequency of the variable: 20
Total frequency of all variables: 120
Therefore, we divide 20/120 which gives you the answer of 0.167. In other words, this variable represents about 16.7% of the total frequency in your dataset.
Hope this helps!
