The Brainliest Answer!

.20x = Number of boys

.80x = Number of girl If 80% are girls, then 20% are boys

.80x=800

x=1000 total students

.20x = .20(1000) = 200 Boys

Then,Girls=2/3x

According to problem no.of girls is 800

2/3x=800

=>2x=800*3

=>x=800*3/2=1200

therefore no. of students is 1200.
