Question from jeric, a student:

3/10 of the passenger in a bus were men, 2/7 of the remainder were women and the rest were children, if there were 50 passengers in the bus, how many more children than women were there?

Hi Jeric,

There were 50 people on the bus and $\frac{3}{10}$ of them were men. How many men were there? How many were left? How many were women? How many were children?
