Half the students in Max's class volunteer at the local community center. 15 students do not volunteer.if there are 12 boys in Max's class , how many girls are in Max's class? I am having a brain freeze!
let the number of girls be x
total in class = x+12
number of students who do not volunteer
but this is 15
(x+12)/2 = 15
x+12 = 30
x = 18
So there are 18 girls in the class.

I worked it out.
Then, divide 1/2(x+12) by 1/2 and the 15 by 1/2
(x+12)-12 30 -12
x= 18posted by Unicorn
