(i)  We need to have a common basis for the ratios

 

Men : Children  =   11 : 2   =  33 : 6

 

Woman : Children  = 10 : 3  =  20 : 6

 

Therefore  .......  Men : Women  =  33 : 20

 

 

(ii) The number of men  =   (33/6) * 24  =  132

  

     The number of women  = (20/6) *24  = 80

 

     Total members  =   132 + 80 + 24  =  236
