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?

Let 3x = The amount of Juniors 

 

Let 2x = The number of Seniors

 

3x / 2x = 3/2 

 

(3x + 6) /  ( 2x - 1 ) = 3/2 

 

Solve the System of equations: and we get x = -7

 

Meaning this problem is most likely impossible to answer or has NO SOLUTION

You didn't need to solve the problem for him. This is already the 8th problem like this that I've seen in web2.0calc.com
