Further to my previous post, in this post I am distilling the information from the linked table and also submitting some of my initial workings. I will state my question clearly thereafter and hope one of you will be able to guide me.

Aim:Find the number of "average veterinary practices".

Information:

1) There are two types of veterinary practices: 'Primary Care' (95%) and 'Emergency Care' (5%), for a total of 15000.

2) For the sake of simplicity, we will define an "average veterinary practice" in terms of theaverage number of doctorsit employs.

3)

25% of veterinary practices(or3750) are 1 doctorPrimary Carepractices and have an average of 1 doctor

30% of veterinary practices(or4500) are 2 doctorPrimary Carepractices and have an average of 2 doctors

40% of veterinary practices(or6000) are 3+ doctorPrimary Carepractices and have an average of 4.6 doctors

5% of veterinary practices(or750) areEmergency Carepractices and have an average of 4 doctors

It is given that the average # of doctors across allNote:Primary Careveterinary practices is 2.7

Question 1:

Since the average # of doctors across both types of hospitals is , could the number of veterinary practices that may be considered "average", in terms of the number of doctors employed, be 95% of hospitals or 14,250?

Question 2:

Should the above be correct, is it also correct to state that 95% of the 14250 "average veterinary practices" arePrimary Careand the rest areEmergency Care?

Would greatly appreciate some guidance.

Best regards,
