Annual incidence of a disease is 15/100,000 population & case fatality rate is 40%. Based on the data which of the following represents annual mortality rate per 100,000 people?

a. 0.4 x 15
b. 0.4 x 100000
c. 0.6 x 14
d. 0.6x 100000

How to calculate ? is it fatality rate = death from cause/ no of person with disease
or 40% = Death from coz/ 15
so annual mortality = 0.4 x 15 ?
I gave option d in test n got it wrong . will it be the option A?
