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 $\color{blue}{10}$ $\color{blue}{80}$

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