A:

Answer:Approximately the number of men is 203 and number of women is 47.Step-by-step explanation:It is given that the United States Air Force has 19 women for every 81 men enlisted.It means the ratio between men and women is 81:19.Sum of ratio is[tex]81+19=100[/tex]Therefore for each 100 people, there are 81 men and 19 women.Total number of peoples is 250.[tex]\frac{250}{100}=2.5[/tex]In 250 members the number of men is[tex]2.5\times 81=202.5[/tex]The numbers of persons cannot be a fraction values or a decimal value, therefore the number of men is 203.In 250 members the number of women is[tex]2.5\times 19=47.5\approx 47[/tex]Therefore approximately the number of men is 203 and number of women is 47.
