the ratio means that if there are 3 men there are 4 women . and if there are 6 men there will be 8 women. so if you take that as a fraction you will get men's portion as 3/7 and you can calculate the rest

\(\frac{3}{4} = \frac{228}{x} \)

\(\frac{3}{4} \frac{228}{x} \) Solve for x

To solve this problem, you write it out as 3/4 = 228/x and then you cross multiply to get 3x=912. Then you solve for x by dividing both sides by three. This will give you the answer that x = 304. So, if there are 228 men, there are 304 women.
