On a certain sightseeing tour the ratio of the number of women to children was 5 to 2. What was the number of men in the sightseeing tour?
1. on the tour ratio of children to men was 5 to 11
2. the number of women was less than 30
I already know the answer (will post later).
Please explain how you got to the answer.
Ratio of Women : Children
5 : 2
or 25 : 10
Ratio of Children : Men
5 : 11
or 10 : 22
Therefore ratio of Women : Men
25 : 22
As we are not given any other info, hence 1 is insufficient.
2. women < 30
As 2 does not have any info on the no. of men, hence it is insufficient.
1 & 2 => The only possibility for women to be less than 30 and still maintain the ratios given in the question, is when women = 25, for which men=22.
