Question 143

# What is the percentage differenéé-between the number of males and females working in the night shift from these industries?

Solution

It is given that 8% of 40250 are in Sales. Thus number of people in sales = 8% of 40250 = 3220

Also, females in sales are 60%. Number of females in sales = 60% of 3220 = 1932. Thus remaining are males which are 3220 - 1932 = 1288

Similar things can be calculated for other sectors as well and can be obtained as below table:

Total number of females = 1932+2254+966+966+1449 = 13363

Total number of males = 40250-13363 = 26887

Difference = 26887-133363 = 13524

Difference as percentage of total employees = $$\frac{13524}{40250}\times\ 100\%\ =\ 33.6\%$$
