I think that in order to understand the OE, this problem should say "If the number of males is 2/3 that of the females" instead of "If there are two-thirds more males than females".

I thought it meant that M=5/3*F, when it really means that M=2/3*F. ¿Does my thinking makes sense?

Makes sense. Let me consult and I will change the question appropriately.
