Performance | Total | |||
---|---|---|---|---|

Average | Good | Excellent | ||

Male | $\color{blue}{16}$ | $\color{blue}{22}$ | 10 | $\color{blue}{48}$ |

Female | $\color{blue}{(40-16) = 24}$ | $\color{blue}{8}$ | -- | 32 |

Total | $\color{blue}{40}$ | 30 | $\color{blue}{10}$ | $\color{blue}{80}$ |

$∴ \color{green}{\text{The proportion of good female students =}} $ $\color{purple}{\dfrac{8}{32} = 0.25}$
