On a certain sight-seeing tour, the ratio of the number women to the number of children was 5 to 2. What was the number of men on the sight-seeing tour?
(1) On the sight-seeing tour, the ratio of the number of children to the number of men was 5:11
(2) The number of women on the sight-seeing tour was less than 30
I got C,
1st gives another ratio, so we have two ratios, obviously insuff.
The key point is to remember that W,C,M must be intengers.
From equation 2W=5C, possible values for W are 25,20,15,10,5
thus possible values for C are 10,8,6,4,2, given equation 11C=5M, from these choices M and C are both intengers only when C=10, thus M=22.
