At the

At the presentation of the travelers came three times as many men than women. When eight men left with their partners, there were five times more men than women at the presentation. How many were men and women originally?

Correct answer:

m =  48
z =  16

Step-by-step explanation:


m=3z
m-8 = 5•(z-8)

m=3•z
m-8 = 5•(z-8)

m-3z = 0
m-5z = -32

m = 48
z = 16
