    I don't understand the question. If this is an exercise you were given, please quote it exactly, word for word.

    More Details, I hope.

    Sorry, not a school question.

    Revised:

    Objective: I want to find out what baseline to use for Group B to calculate "30% more" from Group A.

    The values I have:

    The average number of mistakes made by a workforce is 100 per year based on 86,000 employees

    The workforce is categorized into 2 groups

    Group A makes 30% more mistakes than Group B

    Group A represents 90% of the workfoce

    Group B represents 10% of the workforce

    What is the average number of mistakes Group A makes or baseline. Do I just take 100X1.3 or would the average of group B be lower then the total group average.

    I hope this helps

    thanks in advance
