### a)

Getting the sample percentage of men that got sexually harassed in the workplace we have:

$\dfrac{\# \text{Men that got sexually harassed}}{\# \text{Men}}=\dfrac{120}{120+380} = \dfrac{120}{500} = 0.24$

Meanwhile, the sample percentage of women that got sexually harassed in the workplace would be:

$\dfrac{\# \text{Women that got sexually harassed}}{\# \text{Women}}=\dfrac{120}{120+380} = \dfrac{182}{182+337} = \dfrac{182}{519} \approx 0.35$
