[quote=Gman8990;227004]here is the problem:

There are 75 more women than men enrolled at Linden College. If there are 'n' men enrolled then in terms of 'n' what percentage of those enrolled are men?

Answer choices:

A) n/ (n+75) %

B) n/ (2n+75) %

C) n/ (100(2n+75)) %

D) 100n/ (n+75) %

Hey mate,

The Percentage of Men enrolled is calculated using

%Men = (Number of Men)/(Total Number of Men and Women)

we know Number of Men = n

and that there are 75 more females than Men

Therefore,

Number of Women = n + 75

Thus,

Total number of People = (n) + (n + 75) = 2n + 75

Thus

Percentage Men = n/(2n+5)

hence (b)

Hope this helps,

Regards,

David
