Hi All,

This must be a super easy question but I am apparently lost in this simple calculation.

Question Prompt: 4/5 of the women and 3/4 of the men speak Spanish. If there are 40% as many men as women, what fraction of the group speaks Spanish?

Problem: I am lost about how to calculate " 40% as many men as women ". I know it must be pretty easy, but Im not getting it. The official solution tells that If we assume that "if there are 40 Men than, there will be 100 women" Im not getting how its being calculated.

Official solution is below.

Appreciate your help!

Thanks.
