75% of Americans are non smokers while 25% are smokers.. but those numbers (smokers) go down each year as new medical science is giving fed up smokers are kicking the habit (me being one of them!) ;) I QUIT (And I am proud to say I am a quitter!) :P

ID00000000, Didn't you claim to be 15 years when you spammed another one of my answers? Judging by the infantile nature of your spamming, are you as old as 15?

The 'official' estimates of smoking prevalence are derived mostly from telephone surveys. Given the current witch hunt against smokers, admitting that you're a smoker is similar to admitting you're a serial killer. Other data, for example tobacco sales, suggest the 'official' prevalence rate could be under-estimated by up to 55%. In other words, up to around 15% of Americans could be 'closet smokers'.

How Do you Find a ratio?

A ratio is expressed as the relationship of whole numbers or decimals. The numbers can determine percentages, scales, parts of a solution, or output per input in gears. The ratio is simply a multiple and can be changed to other ratios just as fractions are changed, by multiplication of both sides.Some examples of ratios are:If you need to mix 1 part whitewash with 2 parts water, the ratio is 2:1If a gearbox input shaft makes 1 revolution causing the output to make 2.6 revolutions, the ratio is 1:2.6If a drawing of a house is drawn on paper, it is drawn much smaller but to scale with the real house dimensions. If the drawing is 120 times smaller than the house, then the scale is 1:120If 26 out of every 100 adults smoke cigarettes, then the ratio is 26:100In the final two examples, you can express the ratio scale as a fraction (1/120th scale) and the percentage of smokers as 26% (26 percent).To simplify a ratio, divide both sides by the smaller number. E.g. the ratio of 300 to 10 (300:10) is 30 to 1, and the ratio of 10:20 equals the ratio 1:2 (1/2).

Do you lose seven minutes of your life per cigarette you smoke?

Yes it is true. You lose 7 minutes of your life for every cigarette you smoke. I disagree.There is no way one can quantify such a variable. Many heavy smokers live to a ripe old age. Some light smokers die relatively early as do some nonsmokers. For smokers and nonsmokers alike the mortality (death) rate is 100%!

How much longer do nonsmokers live than smokers?

The average life expectancy for non-smokers over smokers is about 14 years. However, this is an average. Some will live longer, some less time. Still, they're odds to consider carefully.
