  1. let the number of girls be x
    total in class = x+12
    number of students who do not volunteer
    = (x+12)/2
    but this is 15

    (x+12)/2 = 15
    x+12 = 30
    x = 18

    So there are 18 girls in the class.

  7. I worked it out.

    1/2(x+12)= 15
    Then, divide 1/2(x+12) by 1/2 and the 15 by 1/2
    x+12= 30
    (x+12)-12 30 -12
    x= 18
