  1. (1/8)+(5/6)=23/24
    total students=24
    12 boys 12 girls
    5/6 honor students
    1-5/6= non honor students
    1/6 =non honor students
    (1/6)*12=2 non honor students
    2/24=1/12

  2. Your answer is a little off to the statement and wrong, showing ambiguity.
    The following solution might clear out the sense:
    Total number of students = (1/8)+(5/6)= 46/48
    Total Girls= 24
    Total Boys= 24
    Honor boys= (5/6)*24= 20
    Non honor boys= 24-20= 4
    so part of the class the non honor boys are = 4*(1/48)= 1/12
