ExplanationRead the first table carefully to find the number of male freshman (MF) and female sophomores (SF):

MF : SF → 303 : 109

The question asks for an approximation, so round both numbers down to the nearest hundred:

MF : SF → 300 : 100

Remember, ratios can be expressed as fractions. When you reduce 300 : 100, you end up with 3 : 1.

300 : 100 → 300/100 → 3/1 → 3 : 1 or 3 to 1

Hence option B is correct.
