Welcome. I'd like to help you, but please check the question for accuracy. I think there may be a mistype. 7-0 is not usually how murder rates are written. Most of the ones I've seen are per 100,000 people - at least when talking about national averages. If this is supposed to be phrased 7.0 and it's calculated based on 100,000 people the answer is c. Please check the question to be sure that's what it is really asking before accepting. :)

It should be 7.0 instead of 7-0

Thanks for double checking. If it is based on the national average which is calculate per 100,000 people, then 21 is the correct answer. :) Good luck
