Let no. of boys be x
No. of girls is 3/5x
3/5x+x=96
8/5x=96
x=96*5/8
x=60
Boys=60
Girls=36

The Brainliest Answer!

Then,

No of girls will be 3/5x

According to question:

=>x+3/5x=96 [total students are 96 given in question]

=>[5x+3x]/5=96

=>8x/5=96

=>8x=96*5

=>8x=480

=>x=480/8

=>x=60

so, number of boys is 60

To find girls

96-60

36

so number of girls is 36

ANS:NUMBER OF BOYS IN CLASS ARE 60 AND GIRLS IS 36.....
