It’s easy to calculate percentagesI would keep a tally sheet as the surveys came in and simply tally their answers. It’s easy to calculate percentages based on total number of participants. Let’s say I had a total of 25 people respond to my survey. I would simplybased on total number of participants. Let’s say I had a total of 25 people respond to my survey.
