This devaluation drastically raised the price of imported products. According to a survey conducted by AC Nielsen in April 2002, 68% of the consumers in Argentina were buying fewer products than before the devaluation, 24% were buying the same number of products, and 8% were buying more products. Furthermore, in a trend toward purchasing less-expensive brands, 88% indicated that they had changed the brands they purchased. Suppose the following complete set of results were reported. Use the following data to answer this question.Number of Products Purchased Brands Purchased Fewer Same More TotalSame 10 14 24 48Changed 262 82 8 352Total 272 96 32 400Given that a consumer changed brands, what then is the probability that the consumer purchased fewer products than before?
