The ratio of Males and Females below poverty line in C is 3 : 4. Since there are 6000 males below poverty line in C, so there will be 8000 females below poverty line. Hence total people below poverty line in C = 6000 + 8000 = 14000. Now this is 14% of total population.
Hence 14% of total population = 14000
∴ Total pop = 100000
The no. of males below poverty line in E is 10000 and the ratio is 4 : 1. Hence there are 2500 females in E below poverty line. So total people below poverty line is 12500 which is 25% of total population.  
Hence total population of state E = 50000
Hence the reqd. ratio is 100000 : 50000 or 2 : 1 

The ratio of Males and Females below poverty line in C is 3 : 4. Since there are 6000 males below poverty line in C, so there will be 8000 females below poverty line. Hence total people below poverty line in C = 6000 + 8000 = 14000. Now this is 14% of total population.Hence 14% of total population = 14000∴ Total pop = 100000The no. of males below poverty line in E is 10000 and the ratio is 4 : 1. Hence there are 2500 females in E below poverty line. So total people below poverty line is 12500 which is 25% of total population. Hence total population of state E = 50000Hence the reqd. ratio is 100000 : 50000 or 2 : 1
