students surveyed boys and girls separately to determine which sport was enjoyed the most. After completing the boys survey it was determined that for every 7 boys who enjoyed football, 2 boys enjoyed baseball. The girls survey had a ratio of the number of girls who enjoyed football to the number of girls who enjoyed baseball pf 3:6. if the same number of boys and girls were surveyed and 140 boys enjoy football how many girls enoy each sport?

140 boys / 7 boys = x boys/2 boys, solve for x
x = 40 boys who enjoy baseball.
140 + 40 = 180 boys who enjoy football and baseball.
[3 / (3+6)] x 180 = 60 girls who enjoy football
[6 / (3+6)] x 180 = 120 girls who enjoy baseball.
