## The correct option is B 91%Given, Scale: On X axis - 1cm = 5 lb On Y axis - 1 cm = 5 unit So each division of that 1cm on X and Y axis = 1 unit The total number of babies is 100. 2 babies (yellow) or 2% had a low birth weight. Babies who weigh 10 lb or more are considered to have a high birth weight. light blue - 6 and orange - 1 7 babies or 7% had a high birth weight.
