Let total no of boys= y

Total no of student=x+y

A/q 5/8 of total student were girls

so... 5x+5y/8

now... no of girls is 120 more means

5x+5y/8 +120

after solving this

this -y = 120

Total no. of students = 480

total no. of boys = 180

total no. of girls = 300

total no. of boys = 180

total no. of girls = 300
