Let us assume there are x numbers of people.
Since this is divided between women and men in the ratio of 5/6 we know that there were x/11 * 5 women.

Similarly, if x number of people are divided into left handed over right handed we have x/16 * 7 left handed people.

since x is a +ve number 5/11 > 7/16
