    Is this sentence correct??

    Good morning~~

    From this statement we can figure out that much of the population is probably in poverty.

    Are there any errors in above sentence???
    If the sentence has grammatical mistakes or awkward expressions, please correct them and tell me the reason in detail...

    Do you commonly use " figure out" in formal writings??

    No. In formal writing we would use conclude or deduce, and in any form of writing we would use only one question mark at a time.

    Thanks for your answer.
    I'll keep in mind one question mark at a time^^
    By the way, can I also use "infer" instead of conclude or deduce?
