Explanation

Let us assume the number of male employees to be x and number of female employees to be y.

Now given that number of female employees to male employees is 3 to 2.

Hence we can say that

\(\frac{y}{x} = \frac{3}{2}\)

Also given number of female employees = 150.

So \(\frac{y}{x} = \frac{3}{2}\) becomes \(\frac{150}{x} = \frac{3}{2}\)

Solving for x we get x =100.

Hence number of male employees is 100.

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
