Assuming 100 people in population

Employed males = 48
Employed people = 64
Employed females = 16
% of employed people who are female = 16/64 = 25%

Since out of 64 employed, 48 are males, the rest of them are females

16/64/=1/4=25%

Let total pop. be 100.
Then 64 people are employed, and of which 48 are male employed.
Hence the remaining 16 are female employed.
16 of 64 is 1/4 or 25%
