Assume the total workers in the company to be 1000
Since, only 30% of the workers are full-time employees, the number of full-time
workers in the company will be 300.

Of this number as 60% of the workers are female, making that number 0.6*300 = 180
Hence, the total number of men in the full-time workers is 120(300-180)

Therefore, the percentage of men in the full-time workers is \(\frac{120}{300}*100\) = 40%(Option B)

It's B.

If you consider there are 100 workers in the company then, 55 will be men workers and 45 will be woman workers.

Then 30 will be full time employees in which 18( 60% of 30) will be woman leaving 30-18=12 men to be the full time worker.

Now we need percentage of men full time workers to full time workers so, (12/30) * 100 = 40%.

Answer choice B is the correct option. Hope I am correct.

Since 60% of the full-time workers are women, 40% of the full-time workers must be men.

Answer: B

(C) 60%

(D) 66 2/3 %

(E) 77 7/9 %


Let total number of employees be 100

Given 30% are full time --->> 30 Employees
60%(30 Employees)= Women = 18 Women Full time Emp
30 - 18 = 12 Men Full time emp

so, 40% of full time emp are Men


Ans : 40% B
