1190 people watched a movie. 2/5 of the male audience and 1/7 of the female audience were children. There were an equal number of men and women. How many audience were women?

(I always get stuck with questions like these. I worked on same denominator, then I'm stuck as I am confused its total 35 units or 70. )

Let total male be 5M and female be 7F

Since there's equal number of Men and Women, therefore 3M = 6F
Hence we can make them common unit. Men is 3 parts, Womem is 6 parts. LCM would be 6

We let Men be 6u, and women be 6u.

Finding total male
3/5 => 6u
5/5 => 10u

Finding total female
6/7 => 6u
7/7 => 7u

Total audience = 17u = 1190
u= 70

Women = 6u = 6(70) = 420

Male: 2U children, 3U men
Female: 1P children. 6P women

Since 3U = 6P -> U = 2P,

Total = 10P + 7P = 1190
Find 6P

1. Mrs Lim will make a profit which is 19% of the import price if she sells the necklace at \$4165. What will be her profit if she sells the necklace at \$4270 and the import price of the necklace remains constant?

2. Students are donating money to a charity fund that helps less privileged kids. The number of \$2, \$5 and \$10-notes donated are in the ratio of 9 : 2 : 5.
4/9 of the \$2-notes and 10 \$5-notes are taken out. The remaining notes are worth \$300. How many \$10-notes are there?

A coin box contained only twenty-cent and fifty-cent coins in the ratio of 4:5. When 16 fifty-cent coins were taken out and replaced by some twenty-cent coins, the number of fifty-cent coins left in the box was 7/8 of the twenty-cent coins. The total value of all the coins remained the same. Find the sum of money in the coin box. (Ans \$112.20)

I think u shld not make the denominator the same because the given condition is number of men = number of women. Not number of male audience = number of female audience. Male audience here refers to the number of male adults (man) and male children. Likewise for the female adults.

The correct solution is posted by nebbermind and ender.
