In a group of 100 adults, 75 percent of the women are left-handed. If there are 12 right-handed women in the group, how many men are in the group?
A. 48
B. 52
C. 54
D. 60
E. 62
Since 75% of the women are left-handed, the 12 right-handed women constitute 25% of the women. Letting w = the total number of women, we can create the equation:
0.25w = 12
w = 48, so the number of men is 52.
Answer: B
