Question 93

# The ratio of number of boys in marketing and finance both and that of girls in finance only is

Solution

Total Number of students = 150
Ratio of Boys to Girls = 7 : 8
Total Number of Girls = $$\frac{8}{15}$$ x 150 = 80
Total number of Boys = $$\frac{7}{15}$$ x 150 = 70
Number of girls in Marketing = $$\frac{50}{100}$$ x 80 = 40
Number of boys in marketing = $$\frac{40}{100}$$ x 70 = 28
Number of girls in HR = $$\frac{30}{100}$$ x 80 = 24
Number of girls in Finance = $$\frac{20}{100}$$ x 80 = 16
Number of boys in Finance = $$\frac{30}{100}$$ x 70 = 21
Number of boys in HR = 70 - 28 - 21 = 21
Number of boys only in Marketing = 28 - (7 + 5 - 2) = 18
Number of girls only in Marketing = 40 - (9 + 8 - 3) = 26
Number of boys only in HR = 21 - (7 + 6 - 2) = 10
Number of girls only in HR = 24 - (9 + 7 - 3) = 11
Number of boys only in Finance = 21 - (6 + 5 -2) = 12
Number of girls in Finance = 16 - (7 + 8 - 3) = 4
The diagram below shows the number of number of students(both boys and girls together) in each discipline, both the disciplines and all the disciplines.

Ratio = 5 : 4
