Last month, customers of the store purchased desktop computers were more likely to purchase the service plan because only 26% did not purchase the service plan, whereas 40% of the customers who bought notebook computers did not purchase the service plan. Explanation: The first step is to calculate the number of customers who purchased the service plan for each type of computer. For desktop computers, 74 out of 100 customers purchased the service plan, which is 74%. For notebook computers, 12 out of 20 customers purchased the service plan, which is 60%. To fill in the blanks in the statement, we need to compare the percentage of customers who purchased the service plan for each type of computer with the percentage of customers who did not purchase the service plan. Since the question asks for the most reasonable possible statement, we will round the percentages to the nearest whole number. For desktop computers, 26% of customers did not purchase the service plan (100% - 74%), so we can say that customers of the store who purchased desktop computers were more likely to purchase the service plan. For notebook computers, 40% of customers did not purchase the service plan (100% - 60%), so we can say that customers who bought notebook computers were less likely to purchase the service plan. Plugging this information into the statement gives us: Last month, customers of the store purchased desktop computers were more likely to purchase the service plan because only 26% did not purchase the service plan, whereas 40% of the customers who bought notebook computers did not purchase the service plan.
