The study includes 1200 U.S. college students.

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). $\frac{760}{1200}=\frac{19}{30}\approx 0.6333=63.33\mathrm{%}$ Thus approximately 0.6333 of the respondents are female. Result 0.6333
