The ratio of men working for a company is 4 to 3. If there are 147 employees total, how many women work the company?

square root of 36/6 = 2.449489743

square root of 16/6 = 1.632993162

square root of 6 = 2.449489743

the answer is square root of 16/6 because the square root of 36/6 is the same answer as square root of 6 = 2.449489743

37/3

step-by-step explanation:

step 1: simplify both sides of the equation.

7x+8(x+

)=3(6x−9)−8

7x+(8)(x)+(8)(

4

)=(3)(6x)+(3)(−9)+−8(distribute)

7x+8x+2=18x+−27+−8

(7x+8x)+(2)=(18x)+(−27+−8)(combine like terms)

15x+2=18x+−35

15x+2=18x−35

tep 2: subtract 18x from both sides.

15x+2−18x=18x−35−18x

−3x+2=−35

step 3: subtract 2 from both sides.

−3x+2−2=−35−2

−3x=−37

step 4: divide both sides by -3.

Step-by-step explanation:

M:W = 4:3 => M+W = 4+3 = 7

the total employees = 147

the number of women work the company =
