Please help me understand - What country has the highest percentage of people that earn >50K?

Tell us what’s happening:
I am confused about what the question wants as the answer, because I can only cross-check the final answer from the provided ‘’, So my question is what percentage >50K means here, like for example take USA; The percentage of people earning >50K according to USA or in terms of the whole population,

so for percentage, what will it be,

A) pop / total pop
B) pop / total pop of that country

here, pop is the no of people earning > 50K, and total pop is the no rows in the dataset…

Mentioning the path to follow will really help me understand quickly, please give a glance of the solution if possible :grinning:

Link to the challenge:

It’s asking for what you’re calling B,

(pop in country with >50K) / (population of country) * 100

It seems like you’re on the right track. Once you calculate the percentage for each country, you can just pick the highest one.
