In a class, the number of boys is more than the number of girls by 12% of the total strength. The ratio of boys to girls is

a)15:11 b)11:14 c)14:11 d)8:11

Let the total strength of class be *x*

Then 12% of total strength

Let the total number of girls be *y*

Then the number of boys = number of girls + 12% of total strength

Now total strength = number of boys + number of girls

Thus number of boys : Number of girls
