Data Analysis (tables) EASY

Let's fill in the table with the information we're given and work our way to the value the question asks us to find. First, use the information in the FAVORABLE column to determine how many women viewed the politician favorably:

26 + w = 59

Subtract 26:

w = 33

Next, go to the WOMEN row:

33 + x + 13 = 89

Combine terms:

46 + x = 89

Subtract 46:

x = 43
