In summary, "N proportion" is a statistical concept used to describe the percentage of a population with a certain characteristic. It is calculated by dividing the number of individuals with the characteristic by the total population and multiplying by 100. "N proportion" differs from "proportionality" which measures the relationship between two variables. It can be used to make inferences about a population, but may be limited by confounding variables and sample size.

That's the answer I get too. % N = [(molar mass N)(# N atoms in molecule)]/(molar mass of molecule)

i got it by this law: 28/N% = 60/100%

therefore: N% = (28 X 100) / (60)

therefore: N% = (28 X 100) / (60)

I like to show units, though, because it offers a good "check" if I need it and can keeps me from getting confused.

"N proportion" is a statistical concept that refers to the percentage of a given population that possesses a certain characteristic or trait. It is often used in research studies to describe the prevalence or frequency of a particular phenomenon.

"N proportion" is calculated by dividing the number of individuals or cases that possess a specific characteristic by the total number of individuals or cases in the population. The resulting value is then multiplied by 100 to express it as a percentage.

While both "N proportion" and "proportionality" involve the use of proportions, they are distinct concepts. "N proportion" refers to the percentage of a population that possesses a particular characteristic, while "proportionality" is a measure of the relationship between two variables in a population.

Yes, "N proportion" can be used to make inferences about a population. By calculating the proportion of individuals with a certain characteristic in a sample, researchers can estimate the proportion in the larger population and make predictions or conclusions based on that estimate.

One limitation of using "N proportion" is that it does not take into account any potential confounding variables or factors that may influence the proportion of individuals with a certain characteristic. Additionally, the accuracy of "N proportion" may be affected by the size and representativeness of the sample used to calculate it.
