Some teachers attended a workshop. They were divided into Group X and Y. The ratio of the number of teachers in Group X to the number of teachers in Group Y was 2:3. All the teachers in Group X were women. The ratio of the number of women in Group Y to the number of men in Group Y was 2:7. What fraction of the teachers who attended the workshop were men?

**Steve**, Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 11:15am3/8 of 40 = 15 girls

(15+x)/(40+x) = 3/4, so x = 60

check: 75/100 = 3/4

---------------------------------------

men fraction = (7/9 y)/(x+y)

but, x/y = 2/3, so x=2y/3

so, men fraction = (7y/9)/(2y/3 + y) = (7y/9)/(5y/3) = 7/15
