    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. \[Class = 320\] \[Boys = (3/5)\times320 = 192\] \[Girls = Class - Boys\] \[Girls = 320 - 192 = 108\]
