# If the ratio of men to women in a city of 54,000 people is 3:1, how many women are there in the city?

**Solution:**

Given the ratio of men to women in a city of 54,000 people is 3:1

Total people = 54,000

Consider total people into 4 parts

let us assume men are 3 parts of total 4 parts

And women are 1 part of total 4 parts

Women = (1/3+1) × (54,000)

= (1/4)×(54,000)

= 13,500

## If the ratio of men to women in a city of 54,000 people is 3:1, how many women are there in the city?

**Summary: **

If the ratio of men to women in a city of 54,000 people is 3:1, there are 13,500 women in the city.
