Probability

If a women with a BMI below 25 are considered to be normal weight, how many of these women would be classified as overweight? If you choose a woman at random, what is the probability that she will be overweight. Chart below

BMI Frequency
15.0-19.9 9
20.0-24.9 12
25.0-29.9 25
30.0-34.9 6
35.0-39.9 2
40.0-44.9 1

I added up from frequency 25 and up to get 34 and added up all the frequency to get 55, and divided = 61.8% I am not certain if i did this correct. I feel confident, hopefully it's right!!
