    actually i got a different answer, we know this much 80% = married 75 % = married and work 5% = married and do not work from this we know that out of the 80% of the people, only 5% do not have a job. so now let look at the remaining 20% of non married people

    we know this much 5% = people who arent married and do not work so far this is all be know from the info provided but the question doesnt mention anything about the remaining 15% but, we can reason out that the 15% much be people who are not married but work there fore 15% = not married but work

    finally, out of the 80% of married people, only 5% do not have jobs and out of the 20% of single people only 5% do not have job. to conclude, there are a total of 10% of people that do not have jobs, 10% is ur answer

    But the problem says Married: 80% (of the total) With work: 75% (of the married, so this is 75% of 80, so it would be a 60% of the total) Without a work: 5% (of the total, so itwould be 25% of a 20%) Single: 20%

    But the 75% apply to the married people, so it is 75% of 80%, (60)

    id say 60% are married and work, 15% arnt married but work. there fore we find 60/75 x 100 and that should give us our answer

    kk, i did it in a calculus way though xD but u seem smart enough to understadn it :) Let x = total number of people y = 75% of x (number of people working) and let z = 60% of x (number of people married and working) therefore z/y times 100 = the percentage of married and working compared to just working)

    therefore z/y of 100 = 60% of x / 75% of x times 100 the x cancels so 60/100 / 75/100 times 100 60/75 times 100

    in this case x = total y = 25% of x (people with no jobs) z = 20% of x (people who are married and do not have a job) z/y times 100 = 20/25 times 100 = 80%.. wait, again? O.o
