If there are 120 men in the class and 46 are not in the above groups, how many men and how many women are there in the class? I have the answer but I can't figure out how to get it. I've done it a zillion different ways and get nothing close.This question is from textbook Answer by josmiceli(9680)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If there are 120 men in the class, and 3/5 have beards, then have beards.
