75% women are left handed
so 25% women are right handed 25% = 12 so women are 48
so men are 100 - 48 = 52

12 right-handed women -- 25% of all women.
We can find that there are 48 women at all.
100-48=52

0.75 x left-handed
0.25 x right-handed = 12
--> x = 48 women
--> number of men = 100 - 48 = 52

Let x represent the number of men in the group. The sum of all the women and men is 100.

75% of x are left-handed, so the 12 right-handed men represent 25% (1/4) of x.

Therefore, x = 12*4 = 48

The number of woman in the group is 100 - 48 = 52.

B. 52

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
