The average of women and child workers in a factory was 15%yr. The average age of all the 16 children was 8yr and average age of women workers was 22 yrs if ten women workers were married then the number of unmarried women workers were________?

A. 16
B. 12
C. 8
D. 6 (Correct)

Let the number of women workers be x

According to the question 22*x+16*8 = 15(16+x)

=> 22x+128 =240 +15x

=> 22x-15x = 240 -128

=> 7x=112

Therefore, x=112/7 =16

Therefore, Unmarried women workers =(16-10) = 6
