Total = 44.

Men = 22 of which 12 have a degree (D), meaning 10 do not have a degree (ND).
Women = 22.

We are given total ND = 14. So Women ND --> x + 10 = 14 --> 4.
Now Women D = 22 - 4 = 18.

Men = 22 ; Women = 22

Men College Degree = 12 ; Men No College Degree = 10

Total 14 have no degree , and we know men not having no degree is 10

So, 4 women have no degree...

Thus, Women having college degrees is 22- 4 =18

We are given that 12 men have college degrees and 14 members do not. We are also given that half of the 44 members are women, so there are 22 women and 22 men. Since 12 men have college degrees, 22 - 12 = 10 men do not have college degrees.

Since 14 total members do not have college degrees, 14 - 10 = 4 women do not have college degrees.

Thus, since there are 22 women, 4 of whom do not have college degrees, 22 - 4 = 18 women have college degrees.

Alternate solution:

We are given that the class has 44 members, 14 of whom don’t have college degrees, thus, 30 have college degrees.

Since 12 men have college degrees, 30 - 12 = 18 women have college degrees.
