Question asked by: cati25

600 people and the ratio is 3:2.

OK, armed with this we can solve the question very easily.

First add the two sides of the ratio to see how many in total: this comes to a total of 5 parts.

Then divide 600 by 5, to get 120.

Then multiply by three and two, so we know that the actual numbers are

360:240, and so the answer is that there are 360 females. Easy when you know how!
