POS 00:44:04 Jose Alvarez Critical Thinking 6.2 1. a. 98.5% of the incumbents for the House seeking reelection won. b. 96.5% of the incumbents for the Senate seeking reelection won. c. I subtracted the number of open races from the total number of races. Then I subtracted the number of incumbents that lost. I divided that amount from the amount of the first equation, which gave me the percentage. 2. The new percentage would have been 99.5%, and I used the same calculation as I did in the first question, except I changed the numbers slightly to match the question’s proposal. 3. a. House races: 72.1% b. Senate races: 65.4% c. Subtract the number of open races from the total then divide the number of incumbents who won by 60% or more by the total of the first equation. 4. a. House races: 42.4% b. Senate races: 12.5% c. Divide the number of open races won by over 60% by the number of open races over all. d. What I can conclude about comparing the percentages of the open races is that it is much more difficult to win by over 60% in an open race in the Senate than in the House. 5.
