From the pie chart, in 1960 women made up 33.4 percent = about 1/3 of the labor force

From the graph, the number of women in the labor force is about 22 million

~22 million is about 1/3 of the total labor force, \(y\)

\(22 = \frac{1}{3}y\)
\((22)(3) = y\)
\(y\)= about 66 million

Answer B

*OR
\(22 = .334y\)
\(\frac{22}{.334} = 65.87 = y\)
