5/7

Making a Table

____M____S_____T

M__1/3___2/3___30%

W___X_________70%

T___60%

If, you assume a total of 100 employees, X becomes 50.

Therefore, 50=70x (to find what fraction 50 is to a total of 70)

X=5/7

Let there be 100 employees.

Hence W = 70, M = 30
Married = 60
Single men = 2/3 * 30 = 20
Married women = 60 - 10 = 50

fraction = 50/70 = 5/7
