The study includes 1200 U.S. college students.
Female      MaleTotalAbout right560          295855Overweight163          72235Underweight37            73110Total760          4401200
We then note that 760 of the 1200 U.S. college students are female (as 760 is mentioned in the row ”Total” and in the column ”Female” of the table). 7601200=19300.6333=63.33% Thus approximately 0.6333 of the respondents are female. Result 0.6333
