1. Half the students were either excellent or good.

2. 40% of the students were females

3. One-third of the male students were average. Based on the above answer the following questions.

Among average students, what is the ratio of male to female?

1. 1:2
2. 2: 1
3. 3:2

Performance     Total
Average         Good     Excellent
Male $\color{blue}{16}$ $\color{blue}{22}$ 10 $\color{blue}{48}$
Female $\color{blue}{(40-16) = 24}$ $\color{blue}{8}$   -- 32
Total $\color{blue}{40}$ 30 $\color{blue}{10}$ $\color{blue}{80}$

$∴\color{green}{\text{The ratio of male to female among average students =}}$ $\color{maroon}{16 : 24 = 2 : 3}$
