Problem

The bar graph below shows the number of students at Lindsay's school who were born in various states.
A bar graph shows the horizontal axis labeled Number of Students and the vertical axis labeled State. The horizontal axis is labeled, from left to right: 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, and 32. The vertical axis is labeled from the bottom of the axis to the top of the axis as follows: New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and Oregon. The bar line for each type of state shows the following: New Mexico bar line extends to 12, Arizona bar line extends to 24, Utah bar line extends to the middle of 16 and 20, Colorado bar line extends to the middle of 24 and 28, and Oregon bar line is labeled with a question mark.
The number of students who were born in Oregon is the same as the number of students from Utah and New Mexico combined.
