Given:
 Dry  Wet  Total  Cats 1030 Dogs2020Total
Let us first determine the cumulative frequencies which are obtained by adding the frequencies in the corresponding column or the corresponding row.
 Dry  Wet  Total  Cats 103010+30=40 Dogs202020+20=40Total10+20=3030+20=5040+40=80
Next, we determine the percentages by dividing the frequency by the row total for the cells not in the last column, while we divide the frequency by the table total for the cells in the last column.
 Dry  Wet  Total  Cats 10(1040=0.25=25%)30(3040=0.75=75%)40(4080=0.5=50%) Dogs20(2040=0.5=50%)20(2040=0.5=50%)40(4080=0.5=50%)Total30(3080=0.375=35.5%)50(5080=0.625=62.5%)80(8080=1=100%)
We note that 75% of the cats prefer the wet food, while 50% of the dogs prefer the wet food. This then implies that there appears to be a different, in the preferences of dogs and cats as the percentages 75% and 50% differ a lot.

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
