There is a certain club which is for men only. There are 600 men who belong to this club and 5% of these men wear one earring. Of the other 95% membership, half wear two earrings and the other half wear none. How many earrings are being worn in this club?

Open Calculator

Answer

Six hundred. We know that 5%, or 30 people of the men are wearing one earring. Of the other 95%, 570, we know that half are wearing two earrings and the other half none. This is the same as if they all wore one.
