# If the ratio of boys to girls is and there are 25 students in a class, how do you make equal ratios to show how many students in the class are boys and how many are girls?  Rupinder

Solution:

Concept:When any two or more quantities are given in the form of ratio then the actual distribution value is calculated as follows:

Let us suppose the quantity A and B in a mixture of x quantity is in the ratio then the amount of A is obtained equal to and the amount of B is obtained equal to .

Calculation:

Step:1 The ratio of boys to girls is and the total number of students is 25.

Step:2 Then by the concept, the number of boys in the class is calculated as follows: Step:3 Similarly, the number of girls in the class is calculated as follows: Hence, the number of boys are 15 and number of girls are 10, in a class of 25 students.

Answer:There are 15 boys and 10 girls in a class of 25 students.
