Explanation

We can use the formula: A+ B - N +B = 180 (Group A + Group B - Neither in the two groups + Both in the groups)

Women= \(180 * 0.3 = 54\)

Minority = \(180 * 0.25= 45\)

Women from minority group = \(54* \frac{1}{9} = 6\)

Back to the formula \(54 + 45 - 6 + B = 180\)

Both = \(87\)

C is the answer

We see that there are 180 x 0.3 = 54 women and 180 x 0.25 = 45 were from minority groups.

We also see that 54 x 1/9 = 6 women are from minority groups.

So we can create the equation:

Total = Women + Minority - Both + Neither

180 = 54 + 45 - 6 + Neither

87 = Neither

Answer: C
