We then note that 72 of the 1200 US, college students are males who feel they are overweight (as 72 is mentioned in the row "Overweight” and in the column ”Male” of the table) and 73 of the 1200 U.S. college students are males who feel they are underweight (as 73 is mentioned in the row Underweight” and in the column ”Male” of the table).

\(\displaystyle\frac{{{72}+{73}}}{{1200}}=\frac{{145}}{{1200}}=\frac{{29}}{{240}}\sim{0.1208}={12.08}\%\)

Thus approximately 12.08% of the respondents are male and feel that they are either overweight or underweight.
