the ratio of girls to boys in the fifth form is 5;4 there are 144 pupils in the
fifth form.
how many are girls and how many are boys?

For every 9 students there are 5 girls and 4 boys.
144/9 = ?
Multiply that by 5 for the girls and 4 for the boys. Check by seeing if they = 144. 
That doesn't make any sense what so ever! >:

Multiply what by 5 and what by 4 ?!?! _

Please will you just explain it better!
