The actual values used in the relative frequency table in the opener are below: This is the frequency table from the opener: Although there are more teachers with bachelor’s degrees than non-teachers with bachelor’s degrees, the percentage is lower. This is because there are more teachers who responded to this survey overall, and the table shows the relative percentage of adults for each group (column). That is, the 26 teachers with bachelor’s degrees are considered among the 50 teachers while the 16 non-teachers with bachelor’s degrees are only considered among the 25 non-teachers.
