Work Step by Step

We can see that the two bars on the right represent \$$30,000$ or below. We can see that he yellow one represents females, because it's written in a box to the left. We can see that the mentioned bar crosses the dotted line for 50%, as well as that it has 51% written on top of the bar. Therefore, using the data shown in the bar graph, we can safely conclude that 51% of all graduating college females in the sample expect to earn \$$30,000$ or below. The statement provided in the exercise makes sense.
