At the Red Sox/ Yankees game on Monday night, 65% of the fans were men (adult male). Another 25% were women (adult female). Of the remainder, 40% were boys and the rest were girls. If 640 boys attended the game, what was total number of people in attendance?

65% + 25 % = 90 %

    the remainder is 10%  of which 40% were boys

 

x = fans in attendance  

 

.10 x   *   .40 = 640

x = 640 / (.1*.4) = 16 000 in attendance
