  • Wording confusion

    I was doing a problem, which I cannot reproduce here, and wanted to see how you guys would interpret a portion of it.

    You are told that during a study, x type of people died during a time frame.
    You must calculate how many y type of people died over the time frame.
    9
    During the time frame
    77.78%
    7
    After the time frame
    22.22%
    2

    I'm not a native speaker, but I would think "over" in this case is the same as "during".

      I am a native speaker and it means during the same time frame

          As a native speaker, it means "during" the time frame.

            Thanks for all your input.
            Normally I would say they same, but I thought otherwise when I say they said during in the previous sentence.

              I'm a native speaker and "over the time frame A to B" would mean "during the time between A and B."
