32% of the teachers in a school are females and the number of male teachers is 85 .find the total numbers of teachers in school.
It is given that 32% of the teachers are female.
This means the remaining teachers are male.
Therefore, (100-32)% = 68% of the teachers are male
Let the number of total teachers be a, we have
68% of a = 85  ... (Given no. of male teachers = 85)
68/100 x a = 85
a = 85 x 100/68
a = 125
Hence, the total number of teachers is 125.
