math - really easy

posted by .

in the local coed softball league, the male to female ratio is 6:6. If there are 160 players in the league, how many are female?

I know the answer is 80. but how the heck do I set up the problem correctly?

  • math - really easy -

    well, change the ratio to male:total
    that is 6:12

    6/12 =males/160
    and you solve that.
    Then, females=160-males.
