Let m represent the subscription rate for a man, and w the subscription rate for a woman.
m/w=4/3, or m=(4/3)w.
2 men and 5 women paid 460. Thus
2m+5w=460.
Substitute (4/3)w for m, in 2m+5w=460.
This gives an equation in the unknown w. Solve for w
2(4/3)w +5w=460 or (23/3)w=460. Answer is w=60
Use this value in the relation m=(4/3)w to get m=80.
Check m/w=80/60=4/3

The ratio of men to women on a bus is 4:5 Nobody gets off the bus. 18 more women get on. The ratio of men to women is now 1:2 How many men are on the bus?

m = men
w = women

equation 1
m/w = 4/5
w(m/w) = w(4/5)
m = 4/5w
5(m) = 5(4/5w)
5m = 4w
w = 5/4m
equation 2
m/(w + 18) = 1/2
(w + 18)(m/w + 18) = (w + 18)(1/2)
m = w/2 + 9
2m = w + 18
w = 2m - 18

Substitute equation in equation 2
w = 5/4m
5/4m = 2m -18
4(5/4m) = 4(2m-18)
5m = 8m - 72 multiply by -1
3m = 72
m = 24
solve for w
w = 5/4m
w = 5(24)/4
w = 5 * 6
w = 30 m = 24

Where can i find out what men secretly want in a women?

This is a difficult question to answer, because different men want different things. I look for a great personality, a proportionate body with a waist, great legs, above average size chest area (Fixya didn't like the word I used despite being respectful), and a tiger in the bedroom. Other may differ. Here is some insight though.

What is the average weight for 5 foot 7 inches?

Female Ideal Weight - Above Average Height The average height of a woman in the US is 5-foot-4. When considering the weight and height ratio, a 5-foot-5 woman should weigh between 113 and 138, 5-foot-6 between 117 and 143 and 5-foot-7 between 122 and 149. The weight and height ratios continue to increase at approximately 4.5 pounds at the low end and 5.5 pounds at the high end of the range, per inch of height. A 6-foot-tall woman's ideal weight range is 144 to 176 pounds and a 7-foot-tall woman's range is 198 to 242 pounds. Male Ideal Weight -- Under 6 Feet Tall Men have an ideal weight range similar to that of women, but their weights are higher per inch. A man who is 5 feet 11 inches tall has an ideal weight range of 155 to 189 pounds, which is significantly higher than the 140- to 171-pound range for women. Men under 6 feet tall can determine their ideal weight without consulting a height-to-weight ratio table by starting at 5-foot-11 and a weight of 155 to 189 pounds. Simply subtract 5 to 6 pounds per inch from the low of 155 pounds, and 6 to 7 pounds per inch from the high of 189 pounds. Thus, a 5-foot-5 man has a range of 122 to 150 pounds and a 5-foot-tall man has an ideal weight range between 95 and 117 pounds. Are There Ideal Weight and Height Ratios LIVESTRONG COM

The average age of 3 girls is 20 years and their ages are in the ratio 3:5:7.The age of the eldest girl is:

The average is 20, it means the total is 60. The sum of ratio is 15 (3+5+7)
Therefore the age of a girl is calculated by multiplying the respective ration with total and dividing by sum of ratio
Age of Eldest girl = 7 x 60 /15 = 28

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Total population 5000,10% increase in men and 15% increase in women, now population become 5600,what were number of men ??/

use simultaneous equations, with x = # of men and y = # of women:
x + y = 5000 --> convert to x = 5000 - y 1.1x + 1.15y = 5600
1.1 (5000 - y) + 1.15y = 5600 5500 - 1.1y + 1.15y = 5600 .05y = 100 y = 2000 plug y = 2000 into x + y = 5000
therefore x = 3000

Let x = the width of the women's court. Then 2x is the length of the women's court.
the area of the womens court is x times 2x = 2x^2

the length of the mens court is 4 ft longer than the women's or 2x + 4
The width of the men's court is 5 ft wider than the womwn's or x + 5

The are of the mens court is 650 square feet larger that the womens so we have to add 650 to the area of the womens court so the men's and women's will be equal

Now we have area of the women's court = area of the men's court

2x^2 + 650 = (x + 5) (2x + 4) = 2x^2 + 14x + 20

The x^2 cancel out and we are left with 14X + 20 + 650 solving for x we get x = 45

Plugging x back into the length and width equations we get the length is 94 and the width is 50

Hope this helped
