What is the number of female employees in Company X ?

(1) If Company X were to hire 14 more people and all of these people were females, the ratio of the number of male employees to the number of female employees would then be 16 to 9.

(2) Company X has 105 more male employees than female employees.

Statement 1 - m/f+14 = 16/9

2 unknown one equation
insufficient

Statement 2 - m-f = 105 i.e f=m -105

combining 1 and 2
Substituting 2 in 1

we can get m value and then f

(C) imo
