Blood type probabilities 2007-12-01
From Noelle:
Question from Noelle, a student:

Blood Type % Population
O+               37.4%
O-                 6.6%
A+               35.8%
A-                 6.3%
B+                8.5%
B-                 1.5%
AB+              3.4%
AB-                 .6%

I need to make another table showing the probablility of meeting someone in each of the eight blood groups. I'm not sure how to find the probability with percentages. Thanks for your help.
