Boys and girls 2

The ratio of boys to girls in math club is 4:3 . After 8 more girls joined the Club, the ratio become 1:1. How many members are there in the club now?

Result

x =  64

Solution:


x = b+g
b=g
b = 4/3 * (g-8)

b+g-x = 0
b-g = 0
3b-4g = -32

b = 32
g = 32
x = 64

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
