**At a fun fair, there were 49 more children than women. There were 3/5 as many men as women. Given that the number of women was 25% of the total number of people at the fun fair, how many people were at the fun fair?Solution**

Men ----- 3 units

Women ----- 5 units

Children ----- 5 units + 49

Total ----- 13 units + 49

(Women) 5 units ----- 25%

1 unit ----- 25% divided by 5 = 5%

13 units ----- 13 x 5% = 65%

Remaining 49 people ----- 100% - 65% = 35%

35% ----- 49 people

(35% divided by 7)= 5% ----- (49 divided by 7) = 7

5% ----- 7

(5% x 20) = 100% ----- (7 x 20) = 140

100% ----- 7 x 20 = 140

**Answer: There were 140 people at the fair.**
