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.
