49 boys were present at small tree intermediate school on Friday

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

Number of Fourth graders at the Small Tree intermediate school =96

Number of Girls= 43

Number of girls absent on Friday= 5

Number of boys absent on Friday= 4

To find:

Number of fourth grade boys on Friday=?

Solution:

Let the number of boys be x

Then

Total number of students = Number of girls + Number of boys

=>96= 43+ x

=> 96 - 43=x

=> x=53

So, the total number of fourth grade boys = 53

On Friday, 4 boys were absent

So,

No of boys present on Friday= total number of boys - boys absent on Friday

No of boys present on Friday = 53-4

No of boys present on Friday = 49
