    If there 875 members in an astronomy club (that's a lot of members ) and 350 of the members are females, how many members are male?

    Find that answer and write it as a fraction.
    (What do I mean by this? Well, if there were 256 members in an astronomy club and 176 of them are Asian, then the corresponding fraction would be \frac{176}{256}.)

    Finally, setup a proportion to convert to percent, as I've explained in this thread: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...stion-1-a.html .
