A company sells packages of tea bags. The number of tea bags per package vary as follows:

Number of tea bags 98 99 101 103

Proportion of packages ?? .40 .30 .20

a. Find the missing proportion

The four proportions have to add up to 1 (100%). So, you can set up an equation:

?? + 0.40 + 0.30 + 0.20 = 1

?? + 0.90 = 1

?? = 0.10

The missing proportion is …

The solution finds the missing proportion as well as the mean number of tea bags per package.
