**Ratio of females to males = 8:7**

**then let females be = 8x**

**and males be = 7x**

**total population = 15000**

**ATQ, **

**8x+7x = 15000**

**⇒ 15x = 15000**

**⇒ x = 15000/15 = 1000.**

**Hence, total no. of females =8x = 8 X 1000 = 8000.**

**and total number of males =7x= 7 X 1000 = 7000**

female:male=8:7

8x+7x+15000

15x=15000

x=15000/15=1000

male population=7 × 1000=7000

female population=8 × 1000=8000
