Boys and girls

In the class are 20 boys and 5-times less girls. How many girls are in the classroom? How many all children are in the class?

Correct result:

x =  4
x+y =  24

Solution:

x=20/5=4x = 20/5 = 4
x+y=20+20/5=20+4=24x+y = 20 + 20/5 = 20 + 4 = 24



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
