    at a concert 2/5 of the people were men, there were 3 times as many women as children, if there were 45 more men than children, how many people were there at the concert

    people: p
    men: 2/5 p
    children: c
    women: 3c
    men: 2/5 p = c+45
    people = m+w+c = 2/5 p + 3c + c

    so, p = 2/5 p + 4c

    3/5 p = 4c
    2/5 p = c+45

    c=27
    p=180
    180 people at the show.

    so, women=81
    men=72
