Classroom

There are eighty more girls in the class than boys. Boys are 40 percent and girls are 60 percent. How many are boys and how many girls?

Correct answer:

a =  240
b =  160

Step-by-step explanation:


a = 80+b
a = 0.6 (a+b)

a = 80+b
a = 0.6•(a+b)

a-b = 80
0.4a-0.6b = 0

a = 240
b = 160
