Step 1

Given Data is shown in table

Step 2

a)

Total no of individuals who more likely to buy is 1329

Individual is 35-44 years of age and more likely to buy is 329

Probability that a randomly selected individual is 35-44 years of age, given the individual is more likely to buy is given by

Step 3

b) No of individuals who are 35-44 years of age = 536

Individual is 35-44 years of age and more likely to buy = 329
