There are a total of 100 people on a committee. 30 of them decide to meet on Saturday. If one-third of the women and one-fifth of the men on the committee participate in the Saturday meeting, how many women are at the meeting?

w = women on comittee

100-w = men on committee

 

1/3 w  + (100-w)(1/5) = 30

1/3w + 20 - 1/5w = 30

2/15 w = 10

w= 75                       75 women on committee     1/3 at meeting = 1/3 * 75 = 25 women at Saturday meeting.
