    \[\frac{ 2 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 130 }{ x }\] \[2x=130 \times 3\] \[x = \frac{ 130 \times 3 }{ 2}\] \[x = 195\]

    there are 2 men for every 3 women, so would you agree that out of every 5 employees, 2 are men and 3 are women?

    would you agree that 2/5 of the employees are men and 3/5 of the employees are women, then?
