in a school, the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls is 2:3 and the ratio of the number of girls to the number of teachers is 7:4. what is the ratio of the number of students to the number of teachers?

 

Hint: Convert each ratio to an equivalent ratio such that the new value for the number of girls is common for both ratios.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

B : G = 2 : 3                G : T = 7 : 4

 

2 : 3 = x : 7

 

x = 4 2/3

 

B : G : T = 4 2/3 : 7 : 4

 

(B + G) : T = 11 2/3 : 4  | *3

 

(B + G) : T = 35 : 12
