#### Of the 288 persons working in a company, 112 are men and the remaining are women. Find the ratio of the number of (a) men to that of women. (b) men to the total number of persons. (c) women to the total number of persons.

Given: Number of persons working in the company =288
Number of men =112
Number of women =288-112=176

(a) Ratio of men to that of women
$\frac{\text { Number of men }}{\text { Number of women }}=\frac{112}{176}=\frac{7}{11}=7: 11$

(b) Ratio of men to the total number of persons

$\frac{\text { Number of men }}{\text { Number of persons }}=\frac{112}{288}=\frac{7}{18}=7: 18$
(c) Ratio of women to the total number of persons.

$\frac{\text { Number of women }}{\text { Number of persons }} =\frac{176}{288}=\frac{11}{18}=11: 18$
