Its stores offer friendly service and a wide assortment of natural and organic foods. The company is committed to high employee satisfaction and great customer service. In an effort to better understand the characteristics of their workforce, the management has randomly selected 180 employees, who were then classified according to their job category and gender. The resulting data are summarized in the contingency table below:

 (a)  Use Excel to obtain a 100% stacked column chart for the data from the table. What does your chart suggest is the relationship between the type of job and gender?
