So if the number of boys = x 7/4 x =189 Solve for the initial number of boys x= 189 / (7/4) x=108 Then how many more would you need for a 3/2 ratio? hint: 3/2=189/ new number of boys

You could do things in a different order, or maybe try to make an equation to solve all of it at once which would just be more complicated..
