    You've worked out the frequency density, as shown from part b, you work out the no. of people per frequency density which is 2. Therefore you just multiply your answer by 2.

    because you are told the density when you are given the information for the first 10

    The area of the bar from 0 to 10 metre is 20unit^2.

    It has 40 people, so 1unit^2 = 2 people.

    The area you have found for the bar between 30 and 40 is 75unit^2.

    We know 1unit^2 = 2 people
    So 75unit^2 = 75 * 2 =150people

    Common sense.

    If 20unit^2 = 40 people
    1unit^2 = 40/20 people
    1unit^2 = 2people

    Do you get it?
