after some time no. of women =5x-(1/3)5x=(10/3)x

no. of men = 3x-(1/2)3x=(3/2)x

therefore ratio will be equal to =9/20

Let no. of men =3x

no. of women=5x

after some time men 3x/2 and women 5x/3

ration is 3/2:5/3 or9:10

no. of women=5x

after some time men 3x/2 and women 5x/3

ration is 3/2:5/3 or9:10
