The required probability is, $\frac{7}{12}\approx 0.58$
We know that from the provided table, $P\left( \text{selecting a women among from the divorced population} \right)=\frac{\text{number of divorced women}}{\text{number of persons divorced}}$ Thus, \begin{align} & \left( \text{selecting a women among from the divorced population} \right)=\frac{14}{24} \\ & =\frac{7}{12} \\ & \approx 0.58 \end{align}
