Ms. Sue
Please proofread and clarify your problem. It makes no sense the way you posted it.

Steve
apparently there are 3 boys for every 2 girls
given 12 boys, that makes 3*4 boys
so, there are 2*4 = 8 girls
surely the problem was not expressed in such vague and inaccurate language. Why not just copy it as it was written?
