72% of male students and 80% of female students passed the exam. 75% of the total student population passed the exam. Find the fraction of the total male student population.
How do I go about finding this information? A couple things I tried led to nowhere...

or F=3/5M, or there are 3 females for every 5 males.
so if the total student population was 8, there'd be 5 males & 3 females.
Thus the final answer is 5/8. :p Sounds about right?
