Calculation:
Number of literate females = total number of literates × 45% = 44500 × 20% × 45% =4005
Number of literate females working = 65% × number of literate females = 65% × 4005 = 2603
Total wages obtained by all = 600 × 2603 = Rs. 15,61,950
∴ The total wages obtained by females is Rs. 15,61,950.
