Can't come up with any elegant way to do the question, so we'll just have to stick with good old "take this to be x and that to be y" method. Let the men who moved to hall B be x. Let the women who moved to hall A be y. Now, the population of the rooms is something like, Hall A: 280x men and 450+y women Hall B: 220+x men and 665y women Data given: 20% of Hall A are men. 50% of Hall B are women. Each point of data gives one equation in x and y. You get two equations. Solve them and you should be able to find the number of people in Hall B.
