Total sales of TV in all months = 1538 thousand

Total sales of Phones in all months = 1538 thousand

Sales of TV/person = 1538/x and

Sales of Phones/person = 1538/1.2x

So Sales of Phones/person is minimum.

So total employees in company in present year, x = 200,000

So total employees in G in present year = 10/100 × 200,000 = 20,000

So total employees in G in next year = 110/100 × 20,000 = 22,000

So male employees = 58/100 × 22000 = 12760
