M/C = 11/2

W/C = 10/3

M/C / W/C = M/C * C/W = M/W

= 11/2 * 3/10 = 33/20 = M/W

M/C * C = M

11/2 * 24 = 132 Males

W/C * C = W

10/3 * 24 = 80 Women

M + W + C = total members = 132 + 80 + 24 = 236 members ( Just as OBT posted)

(i)

If the ratio of men : children = 11 : 2.....then

men / children = 11 / 2 = 33 / 6

And if the ratio of women to children is 10 : 3.....then

women / children = 10 / 3 = 20 / 6

So....the ratio of men to women must be 33 : 20

(ii) If there are 24 children....then the number of men, M, is 11/2 = M/24 ...cross-multiply

24*11 = 2 * M divide both sides by 2

12 * 11 = M = 132

And to find the number of women,W,, we have

10 / 3 = W / 24 .... cross-multiply

24 * 10 = 3 * W divide both sides by 3

8 * 10 = W = 80

So...the otal number of members is 24 + 132 + 80 = 236
