let the total no. of women be x. then, (no. of men)/(no.of women) = 6/5 so, 1500/x = 6/5 solve and enjoy!!

see. the question says. ratio of men to women is 6 to 5. it means that for every 6 men, we find 5 women. so now, if there are 1500 men, we find how many women then?? we know ratio is constant, i.e. 6 to 5 so i made an equation. clearer?
