Ratio:

3000/90 = 3500/x

Cross multiply:

3000x = 315000
x = ?

Cross multiply 3000/90=3500/x
3000x=315,00 divide each side by 3000 and you get x=105 then take 105 and subtract from the original number of 90 and you get 15. So they need to hire 15 more instructors to keep the same student/teacher ratio.
