Relative Frequency is How often something happens divided by all outcomes.
To compute relative frequency, one obtains a frequency count for a subgroup of the population and a frequency count for the total population. The relative frequency is:
How to Find Relative Frequency
Relative frequency = Subgroup count / Total count
The above equation expresses relative frequency as a proportion. You can also express it as a percentage. For example, a relative frequency of 1/5 is equivalent to a percentage of 20%.
Examples1. You has won 3 games from a total of 4 games played
|Win||3||3/4 = 75%|
|Lose||1||1/4 = 15%|
|MacBook||10||10/100 = 10%|
|ASUS||20||20/100 = 20%|
|MSI||30||30/100 = 30%|
|ACER||40||40/100 = 40%|
|TOTAL||100||100/100 = 100% = 1|
All the Relative Frequencies add up to 1 (except for any rounding error).
