Nope that should be the answer.
Its 20
No. M = number of males F = number of females M+F = 80 M = 2*F + 20 2*F + 20 + F = 80 3*F = 60 F = 20 M = 80-F = 80 - 20 = 60

Always good to reread the problem with answer in hand to make sure it fits!
I like the male/female breakdown in your answer better, though :-)
