The relative frequency is given by: Relative frequency = Probability x Number of trials As there are 5 sectors, the probability of obtaining any outcome is 1/5. Therefore, the relative frequency of obtaining for instance ‘q’ (or any of the other letters) would be: Relative frequency = 1/5 x 400 = 80 Hope this helps.
