1970, lower left corner graph:

Number of metropolitan people: about 145 million

NUMBER of non-metropolitan people:
195 (top line) - 145 (bottom line) =
about 50 million

Ratio of metropolitan to non-metropolitan?

\(\frac{145}{50} = approx{\frac{150}{50}}=\frac{3}{1}\) or (3 to 1)

Answer E

Looking at the “Residence” graph (the lower left graph) and the vertical bar for 1970 in that graph, the ratio of the population living in metropolitan areas to the population living in non-metropolitan areas was approximately:

140/50 = 14/5 ≈ 3/1

Note: We can also see that the gray portion (metropolitan) of the vertical bar for 1970 is approximately 3 times as tall as the white portion (non-metropolitan) of that bar.

Answer: E
