1. to get the fractional part of girls, we first subtract 35 from 80 to get the number of girls:
80 - 35 = 45
then we divide this by the total, which is 80:
45/80
reduce to lowest term by dividing both numerator and denominator by the GCF (greatest common factor) which is 5:
45/5 = 9
80/5 = 16
thus 45/80 = 9/16

hope this helps~ :)
