In the classroom

There are 30 boys and a few girls in the class. In the six months, 28 boys and all girls benefited, which was 95% of all pupils. How many pupils are there in the classroom?

Result

x =  40

Solution:

 28+d=0.95 (30+d)  0.05d=0.5  x=d=10 x=30+d=30+10=40 \ \\ 28+d=0.95 \cdot \ (30+d) \ \\ \ \\ 0.05d=0.5 \ \\ \ \\ x=d=10 \ \\ x=30+d=30+10=40
