let suppose in company there were x men and y women employee.
total employee is 3552 so
x + y= 3552
1/9 men and 1/12th women were present and each men got 45 $ and each women got 60 $. so
total spent money = (x/9) * 45 + (y/12) * 60
so total spent money = 5 * x + 5 * y = 5 * (x + y) =5 * 3552 = 17760
