72/136=9/17, multiply by 6 to make it closer to 100, it would be 54/102,
Taking into account that 54/102 is just a bit lower that 54/100, then requested value should be closer to 53.

Percent of persons of voting age who were female=$$\frac{72}{136}$$*100
= $$\frac{9}{17}$$*100=$$\frac{900}{17}$$ ~53%

The percentage of all voters who were female in 1972 was 72/136, which is 52.9 or roughly 53 percent.
