Given;

Fraction of people that are men =

Fraction of people that are women =

Number of children = 50

Let fraction of children be

When talking about fraction, a whole is

Sum of all the fractions should be equal to 1

the fraction of people that are children

of

the number of people altogether is 120

b) To find the number of more women than men, we need to find the number of men and women. After that, we subtract the number of men from the number of women.

Number of men = of 120

Number of women of 120

Number of more women than men = number of women – number of men
