Detailed Solution:
(1 – 5):Total Number of employees = 2400
Total number of male I = 5/8 x 2400 = 1500; total number of females = 2400 – 1500 = 900

 Department Male Female HR 180 330 Marketing 330 191 IT 185 100 Production 630 63 Accounts 175 216 1500 900

1). b) Required percentage = 185 x 100/1500 = 121/3 ≈ 12%

2). e) Males work in the Accounts department = 175
3). b) Required percentage = (175 + 216)/2400 x 100= 16.29%
4). a) Required percentage = 63/900 x 100 = 7%
5). d) Required number = 330 + 191 = 521
