    i do not think that is right, it says is 9 more meaning +9 more than 4* the number of girls.

    btw, without even doing calculations u can logically solve this problem. we know its for times more and a total of 94 students. 92 and 77 are out righ away. considering its more then 4 times more, 23 is out too as it goes over 94. so only right answer is 17. another trick if you do not understand or like the mathematial way :)
