**Aussies' fluoride smile is best
**

- The use of "average" and "two-fifths" in the first paragraph to describe children with one or no decayed teeth is a bit unusual. What percentage or fraction do you think would represent the "average group"?
- Sketch what a pie chart might look like if it were representing the percentage of children with no decayed teeth, one, and more than one.
- Write a conditional probability statement which expresses
the relationship of tooth decay and fluoridated water as Pr(A|B)
= n x Pr(A|C).

Carefully define A, B and C.
