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 answered this question a couple of days ago and the thread was removed.  

I thought probably a moderator had deleted it because it was a bogus problem.  

If you start with the ratio of juniors to seniors 3:2, and then add even more juniors,  

the ratio can not invert to 2:3.
