Explanation

Using the unknown multiplier we do have\(\frac{F}{M} = \frac{3}{2}\)

Which means that F = 3x = 150 >>>>>>> \(x = 50\)

Male are 2x from this \(2*50 = 100\)

We can solve this using equivalent ratios

Let M = number of male employees

We can write: 3/2 = 150/M
Cross multiply to get: 3M = (2)(150)
Simplify to get: 3M = 300
Solve: M = 100

Answer: 100
