For every boy taking classes at the music school, there are 3 girls who are taking classes at the school. If there 128 students taking classes, write and solve a proportion to predict the number of girls taking classes at the school.

  1. Reiny

    boy : girls = 1 : 3 or x : 3x
    x + 3x = 128
    4x = 128
    x = 32

    so 32 girls and 3x or 96 girls take music

    or

    3/4 = n/128 , where n is the number of girls
    4n = 384
    n= 384/4 = 96
