Question 8

Forty percent of the employees of a certain company are men, and 75 percent of the men earn more than Rs. 25,000 per year. If 45 percent of the company's employees earn more than Rs. 25,000 per year, what fraction of the women employed by the company earn Rs. 25,000 year or less'?

Solution

Let the number of employees be 100.

=> 40 men and 60 women.

Number of men getting more than 25000 = 30

Number of people getting more than 25000 = 45

Number of women getting more than 25000 = 45 - 30 = 15

Fraction of women getting less than 25000 = $$\frac{45}{60}$$ = $$\frac{3}{4}$$
