let x be the number of boys
then x + 17 be the number of girls.
x+x+17=431
2x=431-17
2x=414
x=207, this is the number of boys
but, the question is the number of girls so, use x+17=207+17 is equal to 227.
So, there are 227 girls and 207 boys in 8th grade class.

Bob has one and a half times as much money as Ramon. Together they have $225. How much money does each have?

- anonymous

Let x be the money of Ramon
and (1/2)x be the money of Bob.
x+(1/2)x=$225
(3/2)x=$225
3x=2($225)
3x=$450
x=$150, this is the money of Ramon
so, Bob's money will be (1/2 of 150) which is $75.
Therefore, Bob has $75 while Ramon has $150.

Let x be the age of Contra Costa College
x+18 and 2 1/2 x is the age of Solano College
x+18=2 1/2 x
x-2 1/2x=-18
x-(5/2x)=-18
(-3/2)x=-18
x=-18/(-3/2)
x=36/3
x=12, this is the age of the Costra Costa
then, x+18=the age of Solano
x=12
12+18=30, this is the age of Solano
Therefore, the age of Contra is 12 years while Solano is 30 years old
