a. Parkview has more boys than Cypress.

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

I think my answer is A because then I did the following:

81x3boys=243 boys for Parkview Middle

56.7x3 boys for Cypress Elementary=168 boys

Please check this problem and let me know if I did it correct or if did something wrong.

b/g = 3/4

now 3 boys/7 girls is again 3 boys/4 girls

the schools have the same number of girls, boys and totals.
