3/5 of the female members and 1/3 of the male members attended a meeting. 108 members attended the meeting. There were 260 members in the club. How many more male than female members were there in the club?

  • math -

    3/5 m + 1/3 f = 108
    m + f = 260

    clear fractions to get

    9m + 5f = 1620
    m + f = 260

    9m + 5f = 1620
    5m + 5f = 1300

    4m = 320
    m = 80
    f = 180

    3m/5 = 48
    f/3 = 60

    48+60=108
