Number of males in school = 3/8
Number of females in school = 5/8
Number of male students taking calculus = 3/5*3/8 = 9/40
Number of female students taking calculus = 1/4*5/8 = 5/32

Number of students who take calculus = 9/40+5/32 = 36+25/160 = 61/160
Number of students who donot take calculus = 1-61/160 = 99/160

B is the answer.

3/8 of the students in a school are male, and 3/5 of the male students take calculus. If 1/4 of the female students take calculus, what fraction of the students at the school do not take calculus?


A 61/160

B 99/160

C 1/2

D 3/5

E 2/5


solved using 2x2 matrix

we get 99/160 as answer

IMO B
