The chart above shows the number of weeks of vacation taken annually by those in the workforce. There are 200 million people in the work force, of whom 46% are female. If 20% of male workers take 1 week of vacation, how many female workers take 1 week of vacation?

a) 4.6 million

b) 10.8 million

c) 14.2 million

d) 21.6 million

e) 28.4 million

Please assist with above problem.

Female workforce = 92 million (ie, 46% of 200 million )

Male workforce = 108 million ( 200 million - 92 million)

Total workforce taking 1 week vacation = 50 Million ( 25% of 200 million )

**Quote:**

If 20% of male workers take 1 week of vacation, how many female workers take 1 week of vacation?

20% males = 21.60 million male employees take 1 week vacation...

So, Female workforce taking 1 week vacation is = 28.40 (ie 50 - 21.60 )

Hence correct answer will undoubtedly be (E)
