That makes no sense....you can't compare the two. You want the # of women that failed and the percentage of men that failed...

So...if 1 woman failed, that is enough info for you
If 20 men entered and 10 failed you would want to know the percentage.

So your comparison would be one woman failed and 50% of the men failed. That doesn't tell you ANYHING. If however, you knew that 2 women entered and 1 failed, you would have a similar standard to compare...both would be 50%....
