Accepted Solution

A:
Answer: 60% of the people in the survey have had less than 3 accidents.

If we are looking for the amount that is less than 3 accidents, we have to add up the percent for the people that had 1 or 2 accidents.

0.35 for 2 accidents plus 0.25 for 1 accident equal 0.6 for both (or 60%).
