    The ratio is 5:7 when you are dealing with total membership. In other words, out of every 7 members, 5 will be men and 2 will be women

    The ratio will look like this

    5:7 = x:735             change to a proportion

    5/7 = x / 735          Cross Multiply

    7*x = 5 * 735          Combine the right

    7*x = 3675             Divide by 7

    x = 3675/7             Divide

    x = 525

    Answer: 525 men
