You ask a couple of people at the beach what they think about the seagulls. You propose them the statement: Seagulls are annoying. Their responses are as follows:
20% strongly agree
13% agree
12% neutral
50% disagree
5% strongly disagree

What is the chance of a random person responding with 'agree' given that he/she is not neutral?

How do you figure this out? Is it 13/88 for an answer of 15%? Ty.

What percent are not neutral?
Of that number, what part agree?
