In a certain senior class, 72 percent of the male students and 80 percent of the female students have applied to college. What fraction of the students in the senior class are male?

1) There are 840 students in the senior class

2) 75 percent if the students in the senior class have applied to college

*********************************************************

I take back E and

B is my answer

Stupid mistake made here

.72*x + .80* (100-x) = .75*840

*********************************************************

Should be E

From(1) we do do have any ratio of b/g

(2) 75% applied but we do not know the sub totals of how many boys/girls

Taken togther doesnt help
