Using simple linear equation with one unknown.
Let initially the no. of males= no. of females be "x" If 12 more males join the group and 7 females leave the group, no. of males now= (x+12) no. of females now= (x-7) Do you get this part?
yes I got that part

Other answers:

then there will be 2 times more males than females. so x+12=2(x-7) Can you solve this for x?
my first though was x+12+x-7=3x
