The number of boys and girls in a class are in the ratio 7:5. The number of boys is 8 more than the number of girls. What is the total class strength?
Given ratio 7:5
Let the number of boy and girls be 7x and 5x respectively.
Then, 7x = 5x + 8
7x - 5x = 8
2x = 8
x = 4
7x = 7(4) = 28
5x = 5(4) = 20
Therefore, the number of girls is 20 and the number of boys is 28. The total class strength is 48.
