Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let the total population of men be 100 and of women be 100 so 10 men vote for x and 6 women vote for y so total 16 people vote out of 200 16/200* 100= 8% assuming equal no. of men and women

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0an easy trick if this is confusing is use numbers. say there are 50 women and 50 men, for a total of 100 people. then 10% of 50 is 5 and 6% of 50 is 3, 5+3 = 8 and 8 is 8% of 100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as you can see ash used the same trick with different numbers, so the point is that the actual numbers don't matter, you can use any you like
