a. Parkview has more boys than Cypress.
b. Cypress and Parkview have the same amount of boys.

My Answer:
So I already know this much
Parkview Middle School
B/G
3:4 or 3/4

Cypress Elementary School
B/G
3:7 or 3/7

The part where I am getting confused is where they throw in that both schools have 567 students

I did for Parkview Middle school since I know
3x:4x=
7x=567
x=81 boys and girls

but then I get stuck

I did Cypress Elementary school I know
3x:7x=
10x=567
x=56.7
then I am stuck
