## anonymous one year ago CAN SOMEONE CHECK IF MY ANSWERS CORRECT The ratio of men to women working for a company is 2 to 3. If there are 130 employees total, how many women work for the company?

1. anonymous

$\frac{ 2 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 130 }{ x }$ $2x=130 \times 3$ $x = \frac{ 130 \times 3 }{ 2}$ $x = 195$

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?
