# Employees

The company employs 1 440 employees (men and women). For over-average results, the premiums were 18.75% of all men and 22.5% of all women. 20% of employees were rewarded with premiums. How many men and how many women are employed in the company?

Result

m =  960
z =  480

#### Solution:

m+z = 1440
0.1875 m + 0.225z = 0.20 * 1440

m+z = 1440
0.1875m+0.225z = 288

m = 960
z = 480
