Determine 22633

Among all employees of one company, there are a total of 20% men and 80% women. If this company hired 45 new employees, of which 32 were men and 13 were women, exactly 30% of the company's employees would be men. Determine how many employees the company has in total.

Correct answer:

x =  185

Step-by-step explanation:


0.20x + 32 = 0.3(x+45)

0.20·x + 32 = 0.3·(x+45)

0.1x = 18.5


x = 18.5/0.1 = 185

x = 185
