Of the 60 people in a room, three-fourths (3/4) of the people are men and two-fifths (2/5) of the people have blonde hair. What is the least number of men in the room who could have blonde hair?

Let's just say that thee are 100 people in the room

75 are men

40 have blond hair

100 - 40 = 60      

          75 - 60 = 15 men would be the least number with blond hair

Of the 60 people,  (3/4) or 45 are men             ( I guess 15 are women)

 

Of the 60 people (2/5) or 24 have blonde hair

 

If all 15 women have blonde hair, then only 9 men have blonde hair. smiley
