Puzzle - Hint

CalculatorThe local library decided to hand out some of its old books to its 1400 borrowers.

To each of the female borrowers they gave 6 books and to each male borrower they gave 4 books.

If only half of the females in town and three quarters of the males in town accepted the books, how many books were given away?

Hint: It didn't matter how many male or female borrowers there were.
