Help how to I work with ratios

 

In Linguistics 101, the ratio of the number of juniors to the number of seniors is $3:2$.  When six more juniors join the class, and one senior drops the class, the ratio of the number of juniors to the number of seniors becomes $2:3$.  How many students are in the class after these changes?

I believe there is an error with the question.

 

If 6 more juniors join and 1 senior leaves, there is no way the ratio would go from j:s 3:2 to 2:3, because no juniors left and no seniors joined.
