the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls in a school is 14:15.there are 27 more girls than boys.how many girls are there in the school?how many boys?

Let Total number of students = x

Total number of boys = (14*x)/29 (14+15=29)

Total number of girls = (15*x)/29

since number of boys differ from number of girls by 27

[(15*x)/29]-[(14*x)/29]=27

that is x=783 (Total number of students)

there for number of boys=(783*14)/29 =378

number of girls=(783*15)/29 =435

  • -2
boys=378
  • 0
girls=435
  • 0
total no: of boys= 27x14=378
total no: of girls =27x15=435
