The relative frequency is the ratio of class frequency and total frequency. It is the likelihood estimate of the sample statistic that lies within the defined class bounds. Since it acts as the estimate of the statistic it can be used in estimating the probabilities occurring in sampling disrtibutions

A study in Sweden looked at former elite soccer players, people who had played soccer but not at the elite level, and people of the same age who did not play soccer. Here is a two-way table that classifies these individuals by whether or not they had arthritis of the hip or knee by their mid-fifties: Soccer level Ellte  Non-elite  Did not play  Whether person  Yes 10924 developed arthritis  No 61206548 Researchers suspected that the more serious soccer players were more likely to develop arthritis later in life. Do the data confirm this suspicion? Calculate appropriate percentages to support your answer.

Chances: Risk and Odds in Everyday Life, by James Burke, reports that only 2% of all local franchises are business failures. A Colorado Springs shopping complex has 137 franchises (restaurants, print shops, convenience stores, hair salons, etc.). Let r be the number of these franchises that are business failures. Explain why a Poisson approximation to the binomial would be appropriate for the random variable r. What is n? What is p? What is λλ (rounded to the nearest tenth)?
