Work out the total number of students at the school. 

 

                    B + 96 = G 

                    B : G = 9 : 11  

 

                        B              9  

                    ———   =   ——  

                    B + 96         11  

 

                    11B  =  9 (B + 96) 

 

                    11B  =  9B + 864  

                     2B  =  864  

                       B  =  432  

 

                       G  =  B + 96  

                       G  =  432 + 96  

                       G  =  528

 

                  Total Students  =  432 + 528  

                  Total Students  =  960
