The Roper Organization (1992) conducted a study as part of a larger survey to ascertain the number of American adults who had experienced phenomena such as seeing a ghost, “feeling as if you left your body,” and seeing a UFO. A representative sample of adults (18 and over) in the continental United States were interviewed in their homes during July, August, and September, 1991. The results when respondents were asked about seeing a ghost are shown in Table 12.10. Find numbers for each of the following:
a. The percentage of the younger group who reported seeing a ghost
b. The proportion of the older group who reported seeing a ghost
c. The risk of reportedly seeing a ghost in the younger group
d. The odds of reportedly seeing a ghost to not seeing one in the older group
