My Answer:
So I already know this much
Parkview Middle School

Cypress Elementary School

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

x=81 boys and girls

but then I get stuck

  • Math -

    I think my final answer would be A

  • Math -

    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.

  • Math -

    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.

  • TYPO -

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

  • Math -

    How did you figure that out?
    Can you please walk me through the steps on this on how you arrived at that answer.
