@ramzan,
A simple ratio can give you the numbers you need. M:F ratio is given at 10:15. So then, 10/15 = 50/f. Solve to get f=75. So, if there are 50 male employees, there must be 75 female employees.

50 males divided by 50+75 (total employees) gives 50/125, or 0.4. Converting to a percentage, 40% of the employees are male.

@ramzan,

Sol:
Male Employees = 50, let female employee be x
10/15=50/x
x = 75 thus total no. of employees =50+75 = 125
For calculating the male percentage
50/125*100 = 40% of male.
