Probably an easy math question

I'm just curious about something. I could probably figure it out if I took my time and wasn't dead tired.

Nintendo Wii has this everyone votes thing where basically you vote on a question.

A recent one was:

How many people do you live with?
Four or more
Three or less

Four or more 50.3%
Three or less 49.7%

Males voted:
49.7% Four or more
50.3% that voted three or less

Females voted:
51.7% Four or more
48.3% Three or less

You'll notice the male vote is the exact opposite of the total vote.

From these numbers is it possible to figure out the ratio of male votes to female votes?

Re: Probably an easy math question

Only very roughly because of the rounding: ratio of male
about 1.4 to 0.6 or 7 to 3.

0.497*m + 0.517*w = 0.503*(m + w)

0.006*m = 0.014*w

m/w = 0.014/0.006 = 7/3
