The below figure shows the % breakup of total employees working in various departments of an organisation and the ratio of men to women working in them.
Total number of Employees working = 1800

Ration of Men to Women
 Department Men Women Production 11 1 HR 1 3 IT 5 4 Marketing 7 5 Accounts 2 7

Question : What is the number of Men working in the Marketing Department ?
1. 132
2. 174
3. 126
4. 189
5. None of these
Solution : Marketing dept holds 18% of the total 1800 employees. So total number of people in Marketing are = 0.18* 1800 = 324

In the Marketing department the ratio of men is to women is 7 : 5. This means that total number of men in the department = ( 7 / 12 ) x 324 = 189

Number of men = ( men / total men  + women  )  X   Total people in department
This can be weel understood by the fact that out of total 12 people 7 are men and 5 are women. So we use 7/12 of 324 as all the men in the department.

Question : What is the ratio of number of men working in Accounts to the number of Women working in IT department ?

Solution :  No of men in the Accounts department = 2 / 9  X   (17% of 1800) = 2/9 x 0.17 x 1800 = 68
No of women in the IT department = 4 / 9  X (23% of 1800) = 4/9 x 0.23 x 1800 = 184

Ratio of Men in Accounts to the Ratio of Women in IT = 68 / 184 = 17 / 46

______

Question : The number of women working in IT department as a percentage of number of women in HR department ?
Solution : Women in IT = 4 /9   X  ( 23% of 1800 ) = 4 / 9 X 0.23  X  1800 = 184

Women in HR deptt = 3/4   X  14% of 1800 = 3/4  X  0.14  X  1800 = 189

Women working in IT as percentage of Women in HR = Women in IT / Women in HR   X  100 %
= 184 / 189 X 100%  =  94.77 %

_______

Question : What is the ratio of  number of women exceeding men in accounts department to the number of men exceeding women in production ?
Solution  : Women exceeding men in accounts = Women - Men

Women in Account =  7 / 9 X 0.17  X 1800 = 238
Men in Account = 2/9 X 0.17 X 1800 = 68
Number of Women Exceeding Men = 238 - 68 =  170

Number of Men in Production = 11/12  X  28%  X  1800 = 11/12 x 0.28 x 1800 = 462
Number o Women in Production = 1 /12  X 28% X 1800 = 1/12  x  0.28  x 1800 = 42
Number of Men Exceeding Women = 462 - 42 =  420

Ratio of Women exceeding men in Acc to the number of Men exceeding Women in Production = 170 /420
= 17 : 42

Alternatively, this can also be done as :
Number of Women exceeding in Acc = ( 7 - 2 ) / 9   X   Number of people in Accounts
= 5/9   X  0.17 X 1800 = 170

Similarly number of Men Exceeding in Production = ( 11 - 1 ) / 12   X  Number of people in Production
=10/12 X  0.28  X 1800 = 420
Required ratio is thus  = 170 / 420 = 17 : 42
