# the ratio of girls to boys in the chorus is 3:2. If there are 50 students in chorus, how many boys are there and how many girls?

## okay, my cousins also use my laptop for homework help. Ill just ask the questions for them.

## To determine the number of boys and girls in the chorus, we need to use the given ratio and the total number of students.

Step 1: Identify the ratio given.

The ratio of girls to boys is 3:2, which means for every 3 girls, there are 2 boys.

Step 2: Determine the total number of parts in the ratio.

The total number of parts in the ratio is 3 + 2 = 5 (3 parts for the girls and 2 parts for the boys).

Step 3: Find the value of one part.

Since there are 50 students in total, each part represents 50 divided by 5 = 10 students.

Step 4: Calculate the number of girls and boys.

Multiply the value of one part by the respective parts of the ratio:

Girls: 3 parts * 10 students/part = 30 girls

Boys: 2 parts * 10 students/part = 20 boys

Therefore, there are 30 girls and 20 boys in the chorus.

3/5 = x/50

Cross multiply and solve for x.

5x = 150

x = 30 girls
