Allegation Method :

66 - 60 = 6

Dear Moderator,
There seems to be a small typo here.
Kindly check the OA for this one too, ratio of F:M= 3:2 not given in the OA
Ratio of M:F= 2:3.
We are asked F:M and NOT M:F

Hope you will look into this, Thank you.

Bunuel stne can you explain how this was derived? I did not understand how the rule of allegation is applied here.

Hi Preethi88,
Let there me M males and F females. So total employees M+F.

Now lets form an equation of those employees who eat veg food only.

Then we have the following equation
\(\frac{60}{100}M +\frac{70}{100}F = \frac{66}{100}(M + F)\)

On solving we get
.40 F =.60 M
4F=6M
\(\frac{F}{M}=\frac{3}{2}\)

Hope its clear now , please feel free to ask if anything is still unclear.
