What you'll do is add 3 and 8 to get the total:
3 + 8 = 11
Now we divide the total number of students by 11:
132/11 = 12 (this is the multiplier for 3 and 8)
Therefore,
3 * 12 = 36 students (prefer baseball)
8 * 12 = 96 students (prefer soccer)

Hope this helps :3

None of your biz

number for baseball --- 3x
number for soccer ----- 8x
(notice 3x : 8x = 3 : 8)

3x+8x=132
11x = 132
x =12
3x----->36
8x -----> 96

If you add 3+8, you will get 11

Then you must divide 132 by 11 and get 12.

12 is the multiplyer for the numbers 3 and 8
Next, multiply 3 by 12 and you will get 36, multiply 8 by 12 and get 96

Ther are 36 soccer fans and 96 baseball fans!!!!!

If...
Baseball = 3 Soccer = 8
Then you add 3 and 8 to get 11 and do 132 divided by 11, which is 12
12 is now the multiplier for 3 and 8.
12 * 3 = 36 students chose baseball
12 * 8 = 96 students chose soccer

It looks like baseball is a wimp sport if only 36 people out of 132 people like it.
