## anonymous 5 years ago "Please Help" There were 320 students in an auditorium. 3/5 of them were boys. how many more boys than girls were there?

1. Stacey

You can find the number of boys by multiplying 320 times 3/5.

multiply the amount of students by 3/5 in order to find out how many boys the 3/5'ths represent. then once found you can minus that from the original number of students (320). i.e. $Class = 320$ $Boys = (3/5)\times320 = 192$ $Girls = Class - Boys$ $Girls = 320 - 192 = 108$
