If in a staff 21 members are there then 7 will be men and 14 will be women.Let the no.of staff after increasing be y.so we will have y/4 = 7 because the no.of men are fixed . By solving we find y = 28.From which 7 are men so women will be 21.earlier womens are 14.Therefore the increased no. is 7.

The given info tells you there are 21 employees and 1/3 are men. 
21 * 1/3 = 7
so there are 7 men. Thus there are 14 women 
You are asked to find out ho wmany women to hire such that men wind up being 1/4 of the total 
 

The number of men won't change. 
7*4 = 28
We need to get a total of 28 employees.
Since there are 21 now, and we need 28, hire 7 women.
