The question is: calculate the total amount of strain at fracture? How much of this is recoverable strain? Explain your answer

2. Relevant equations

strain = (change in length)/ (initial length)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure about my answer but i just simply read of the graph.

material a - 3%

material b - 15%

but that's in percentage form, how would I get the actual strain?
