Explanation

First off, look at the second graph at the bottom: private 4-years is about 22%, which means that 22% of 5,000,000 is = 1,100,000.

Secondly: look at the first graph at the top: private 4-years has an increase from 80 to 120 about, which means is an increase of about 50%.

1,100,000 50% more is more or less = to 1,650,000.
