    There was a car survey done on the M1 at Britain. There were exactly 87.6% of driver wearing seat belts, What was the least number cars surveyed?

    Did the cars answer by fill in the blank or were there check boxes? Or is this the type of survey with a scope and a target? I'm thinking that if they had interviewed one more car it's licence might have been CCXX 4U.

    Most drivers think they are better than average.

    It's just not possible.



    Edit: Agree with 250.

    The answer to that question is 250 cars.
    Because 876/1000 simplyfly gives 219/250

    So in 219 drivers were wearing seatbelts and 31 were not!

    If a driver had lost a limb, would he still count as exactly one driver?

    Is the limb still in the car? Is it still helping with the driving? Like if for example the driver's leg fell off spontaneously, but was still pressing the gas pedal while travelling through the survey spot?

    To extend that thought - would the driver be responsible for a collision created from such an event? I mean I would take no responsibility for my ex-limb if it went and tromped the gas in heavy traffic!
