**Jai**, Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 9:36pmLet x = multiplier. Thus,

Men = 7x

Women = 5x

The ratio of men to women is still 7 to 5.

Since there are 440 more men than women, we can say that

7x = 5x + 440

Solving for x,

7x - 5x = 440

2x = 440

x = 220

The total men and women is 7x + 5x = 12x. Thus the total is,

total = 12x

total = 12(220)

total = 2640

hope this helps :3
