The ratio of staff to patients is 8:7. The total is 1575.

Add 8+7 = 15, and divide the total by the total of the ratio.

1575/15 = 105

Now multiply 103 by 8 to find the number of staff: 840

Let s = # staff
let p = # patients
================
s/p = 8/7
s+p= 1575
============
Two equations; two unknowns.
