The ratio of boys to girls in a school choir is 4:3. There are 6 more boys than girls. If another 2 girls join the choir, what will be the new ratio of boys to girls?

If you are Katherine, this question was answered in your 1st post last night.
Please check your prior post for an answer before reposting.
I pasted the answer below.
Ratio = Boys : Girls = 4 : 3
4x = number of boys
3x = number of girls
4x  6 = 3x
x = 6
4x = number of boys = 4 * 6 = 24
3x = number of girls = 3 * 6 = 18
If another 2 girls join the choir,
18 + 2 = 20 = new number of girls
24 = number of boys
New ratio = 24 : 20 = 6 : 5
