Girls are 5/8th of the total students

then boys will be 3/8th of total students

Let x be the total students

A/q.

5x/8 - 3x/8 = 120

⇒x/4 = 120

⇒x =480

**so number of girls will be 300**

**and number of boys will be 180**

then boys will be 3/8th of total students

Let x be the total students

A/q.

5x/8 - 3x/8 = 120

⇒x/4 = 120

⇒x =480
