10% of Mexico population migrated to South Asia 10%of the remaining migrated to America and 10% of the rest to Australia. If the female population which was left in Mexico remained only 364500 find the population of Mexico city before the migration and its effect if it is given that before the migration the female population was half the male population and this ratio did not change after the migration ?
can anyone provide me the solution of it in easy way
Let the population of Mexico be x
Population after 10% migrated to SA = 0.9x
Population after 10% migrated to America = 0.9x * 0.9 = 0.81x
Population after 10% of the rest migrated to Australia = 0.81x * 0.9 = 0.729x
Let the no of males be a and females be b
=> a+b = 0.729x
Given that b=a/2
and b = 364500
=> a = 2*364500 = 729000
=> 729000 + 364500 = 0.729x
=> x = 1500000
