Statistics question

Math teachers always claim that doing homework helps students get better grades in their math classes. To test this theory a survey of high school math students was conducted and the following results were obtained:

• 48% complete math homework regularly

• 55% have a B average or better in math class

• 40% do not complete math homework regularly AND have less than a B average in math class.

Using this data, does it appear that students who complete math homework regularly are more likely to have an average of B or better in math class? Justify your answer using mathematics.
