a diner a jar or suffocation on diner white casts

00:27

on news updates and fast food you were picking out

00:31

key words Here people that's how we skin and restaurant

00:33

century are let's Move right on to the question What

00:36

main idea in the essay is confirmed by both tables

00:40

and hear the potential answers Yeah Lou it's picture time

00:48

i don't even have to read the passage for this

00:49

one just have to look over the pretty little tables

00:51

to get our answer They could be prettier though some

00:54

different color throwing some glitter and maybe a sparkly vote

00:57

much better All right so we're trying to track down

01:00

the main idea that's confirmed by both tables In other

01:03

words we're looking for some overlap g that makes them

01:06

hard to read so let's try it side by side

01:08

Okay yeah this is definitely the way to go So

01:11

we've got one table here showing us population by the

01:13

thousands and another showing food expenditures between nineteen thirty five

01:18

and nineteen ninety five okay so this doesn't take into

01:22

account our latest trip that costco and where we spent

01:24

a fortune but yeah all right the first thing we

01:27

should notices that the dates line up more or less

01:30

so we're talking about the same period of time Any

01:33

trends weaken spot well in the first table the rural

01:36

population doesn't change much but the urban population is going

01:39

up by leaps and bounds every decade Then in the

01:42

second table that percent of disposable personal income is trending

01:46

downward but not dramatically However the percent spent away from

01:50

the home is rocketing upward from thirteen point four to

01:53

thirty eight point two percent over the span of sixty

01:56

years the body's in cities going up and that's reflected

02:00

an increase in dining out Any of our fine answer

02:04

choices support such a correlation Well there's a the end

02:07

of world war two saw an increase in industrialization which

02:10

is true but about as relevant as our nephews like

02:14

one sixty six Sorry we just really like to brag

02:17

about this sense doesn't seem to align with the data

02:19

and the tables so we're going to go ahead Nicks

02:21

eh Then there's be lower costs led to a revolution

02:25

in restaurant dining Also no mention in the table's about

02:28

how much food costs For all we know a jar

02:31

of peanut butter went for thirty five bucks which would

02:33

make nutter butters and delicacy so no can't be option

02:36

b c The divide between urban rural regions grew due

02:40

to increase jobs in the cities Well this one starts

02:43

out looking really good since there is an indication in

02:46

the first table that urban population grew much faster event

02:49

rural population but there's no connection drawn in the second

02:52

table between that and an increase in jobs And yes

02:56

sorry to burst your bubble But professional pizza eater is

02:58

not a thing so we're still on the lookout for

03:01

something more food related than job related and we get

03:04

it Once we happen upon option d there is a

03:07

correlation between urbanization and an increase in restaurant patronage There

03:11

we go that's exactly the connection we came up with

03:14

from the get go As urban population grows so does

03:17

the number of people who are getting out of the

03:19

kitchen I guess they couldn't stand the heat here Nice
