a. Parkview has more boys than Cypress.
b. Cypress and Parkview have the same amount of boys.
c. Cypress has more boys than Parkview.

My Answer:
So I already know this much
Parkview Middle School
B/G
3:4 or 3/4

Cypress Elementary School
B/G
3:7 or 3/7

The part where I am getting confused is where they throw in that both schools have 567 students

I did for Parkview Middle school since I know
3x:4x=
7x=567
x=81 boys and girls

but then I get stuck

I did Cypress Elementary school I know
3x:7x=
10x=567
x=56.7
then I am stuck

  2. I think my answer is A because then I did the following:
    81x3boys=243 boys for Parkview Middle
    56.7x3 boys for Cypress Elementary=168 boys

    Please check this problem and let me know if I did it correct or if did something wrong.

  3. b/g = 3/4
    now 3 boys/7 girls is again 3 boys/4 girls
    the schools have the same number of girls, boys and totals.
