24 people in ratio of 3:5 means
Men = 24* 3/(3+5) = 9, Women = 24* 5/(3+5) = 15
That means you need to add (15-9)=6 men to make them equal to number of women
Question:-
Option (A)
125
Option (B)
140
Option (C)
255
Option (D)
265
Correct Option:
D
Question Solution:
Say there are b boys and g girls, that means g = b + 15
Also
1.1g - 1.16b = 9
or 1.1(b+15) - 1.16b = 9
or 1.1 b - 1.16b = 9 - 1.1*15
or b = 7.5/0.06 = 125
Hence g = 140

Total studnets = g+b = 140+125 = 265
