Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiply 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. \[Class = 320\] \[Boys = (3/5)\times320 = 192\] \[Girls = Class  Boys\] \[Girls = 320  192 = 108\]
