In a class of 49 students, the number of girls is 1/6 times the number of boys. Find the number if girls and boys.
Total no. of Students in the class = 49.
Let us assume that the no. of Boys in the Class = X, then the no. of Girls = 1/6 of X = X/6
The equation we get from the problem :
X + X/6 = 49
6X + X/6 = 49
7X/6 = 49
7X = 49 x 6 = 294.
X = 294/7 = 42.
Since the no. of Boys in the Class are 42, the no. of Girls will be X/6 = 42/6 = 7Nos.
Ans: Boys 42 Nos and Girls: 7 Nos.
