a) 73.9% is the percentage of white students at a 4-year college, 13.4% are at a 2-year college, 1.5% are military, 5.2% are employed, and 6.0% are others. b) For minorities: 77.2% 4-year college, 10.5% 2-year college, 1.8% military, 5.3% employment, 5.3% others. c) Graph attached d) The white and minority students plans are very similar.
