## 2/5 of the children in a club are girls.

If there are 24 boys, how many children are there altogether? how many more boys than girls are there?

I’ll not do it for you, but I’ll tell you the steps.

if 2/5 are girls, then 3/5 are boys. first make an equivalent fraction for the boys 3/5=24/X. solve for X, which will be your total number of students. to find the girls, solve X-24=G where X is the total you found, and G is the number of girls.

hope this helps.

MOST of the girls in a club are children, one of my friends started going out clubbing when she was 13 lol
