  • Answer:

    • 25%

    • Drama movie

    Step-by-step explanation:

    • Total number of children

    = 16 +12 +18 +20 +14

    = 80

    Percentage of children that voted for action movie

    [tex] = \frac{no. \: of \: children \: that \: voted \: for \: action \: movie}{total \: number \: of \: children} \times 100\%[/tex]

    [tex] = \frac{20}{80} \times 100\%[/tex]

    [tex] =\textbf{25\%}[/tex]

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    • Total number of votes

    = 30 +32 +36 +36 +26

    = 160

    20% of total votes

    = 20% ×160

    = 32 votes

    Since Drama movie received 32 votes, it received 20% of the total votes.
