Toolbox:
  • $ \overline x = \large\frac{n_1\overline x _1+n_2\overline x _2}{n_1+n_2}$
$ \overline x = \large\frac{n_1\overline x _1+n_2\overline x _2}{n_1+n_2}$
$ 500 = \large\frac{n_1(520)+n_2(420)}{n_1+n_2}$
$ 500 (n_1+n_2)=520n_1+420n_2$
$ 500n_1+500n_2=520n_1+420n_2$
$ 500n_1-520n_1=420n_2-500n_2$
$ -20n_1=-80n_2$
$ \large\frac{n_1}{n_2} = \large\frac{\not{-}8\not{0}}{\not{-}2\not{0}}$
$ \large\frac{n_1}{n_2}=\large\frac{4}{1}$
$ \therefore$ percentage of male employees = 80
