See the document "Guidelines for Students and Helpers", at the start of this Forum; in particular, pay attention to topic 5 (about how and why should not just post images).

Since it says "calculate", I would say there is a mistake in the question.
If it had said "estimate" then I would suggest drawing graph and fitting a smoothish curve to it.

I would be willing to help if you typed it out, but I do not look at attached photos of handwritten work. As I said, read the posting "Guidelines for students and helpers", topic 5.

Was I not clear? There is no way to calculate it from the given information. You could estimate it, by the method I described.

The point is that you are told how many people there are between 30 and 49 but have NO way of knowing how many people are between 30 and 35. If the problem asked for the percent between 19 and 30 or between 19 and 49 then you could answer. But the way the problem is given, you cannot know how many people there are between 19 and 35 and so cannot know what the percentage is
