Unless there's some nasty trick I have missed, isnt this just 64-48 = 16% ?

It says "what percent OF THE EMPLOYED are female"

so (64-48)/64 = 1/4 = 25%

Agree. The question is really asking what percent of 64 is 16.

25%. I'll go with B.

Assume town x has 100 people

Employed -> 64 people
Employed males -> 48, so Employed females -> 16

So % of employed females = 16/64 * 100% = 25%
