Re: At Boogle, 40% of the employees are women and 70% of the men earn more [#permalink]
At Boogle, 40% of the employees are women and 70% of the men earn more than or equal to $45,000 per year. If 50% of the Boogle’s employees earn more than or equal to $45,000 per year, then what fraction of women employees earn less than $45,000 per year.

say M= 60; Women= 40
total = 100
70% of the men earn more than or equal to $45,000 per year= 42( 70*60/100)
50% of the Boogle’s employees earn more than or equal to $45,000 per year= 50
So, women employees earn more than $45,000 per year = 50-42= 8

then what fraction of women employees earn less than $45,000 per year= 40-8= 32/40 = 4/5
