Please let me know if I calculated relative risk correctly. Thank you for your assistance.

3. A study is conducted to evaluate risk factors for incident hypertension. All participants are
free of hypertension at the start of the study and are followed for 4 years at which time they are
re-assessed for hypertension. Risk factors are measured in all participants at the start of the
study. A total of n-3182 participants enroll and 1123 develop hypertension over 4 years. The
following table displays the numbers of participants who develop hypertension by gender and
age group.
