Passenger boat

Two-fifths of the passengers in the passenger boat were boys. 1/3 of them were girls and the rest were adult. If there were 60 passengers in the boat, how many more boys than adult were there?

Correct result:

x =  8

Solution:

b=60 2/5=24 g=60 1/3=20 a=60(b+g)=60(24+20)=16 x=ba=2416=8
