    3/7

    7+10+7 = 24 total students
    14 are girls
    so
    14/24 = 7/12

    suspect you mean 2/3 are girls
    (14+x) /(24+x) = 2/3

    42 + 3 x = 48 + 2x
    x = 6 more girls

    a. is actually 3 / 24 because if I recall the problem says what fraction of the students in the math club are boys from Mrs.Smith class.So won't it be Mrs.Smith boys to all of the class.

    Rodger is right

  • math -

    c. there was 14 girls to start with so wouldn't you subtract 14 from 23 and get 9.

  • math -

    I think you added 6 girls and get 20 out of 30

  • math -

    oh, I assumed that the 23 was a typo and it meant 2/3
