    percent problem

    20% of the male students at Carnage Middle School buy lunch in the cafeteria. The number of female students who buy lunch is 80% of the number of male students who buy lunch, but there are 20% more female students at Carnage than males. If 48 female students buy lunch, how many students attend Carnage Middle School?
