1. So I have a maths problem
There are 5 people
60% are from group X (3/5)
30% are from group Y (1.5/5)
10% are from group Z (0.5/5)

However there can only be whole numbers (as they are people) so surely it would be more accurate to say 2 from group Y and 0 from group Z as there are less in group Z. Thanks

0.05 for Z and yes I'm sure you're right then!
