5/8 of total people work in Mexico and Pakistan, out of which (2/3)*(5/8) work in Mexico, that is (2/3)*(5/8) of 6000 = 2500

Explanation

3/8 of the employees work at the plant in Indonesia
3/8 of 6000 = (3/8)(6000) = 2250
So, 2250 = number of employees in Indonesia

Twice as many employees work at the plant in Mexico as work at the plant in Pakistan
Let P = number of employees in Pakistan
So, 2P = number of employees in Mexico

There are 6000 employees in TOTAL.
So, 2250 + P + 2P = 6000

Solve, to get P = 1250
This means that 2P = 2500

Answer: 2500

Cheers,
Brent
