hi pma,

Given Women:Children = 5:2

1) Children:Men = 5:11 -----> Cannot determine # of men because total number of ppl/men/women/Child is not given.
However, we can get a combined ratio of Women:Child:Men, which is 25:10:22
How did I get this - Multiply 5:2 ratio with 5, which equals = 25:10
Multiply the ratio 5:11 with 2, which equals = 10:22
Combining both, 25:10:22

2) Women<30
-----> This ratio doesn't give any information about number of Men.
Therefore, this info is not enough by itself for the answer.

Combing both Statements:
The ratio 25:10:22 is in its simplest form and the next higher form is 50:20:44, which cannot be because Women<30
Thus, Women = 25, Child = 10, Men = 22.

Hope it helps.
