• The total strength of the class is 60 students.

To find :-

• The total strength of the class.

Step-by-step explanation :-

• Before finding the total strength, we have to find the fraction of boys in the class.

Let :-

• The total strength of the class be “x”.

It is given that :-

• In the class, 3/5 of the total students are girls.

Therefore,

The fraction of boys in the class is :-    ———————————–

Now,

• We know that 2/5 of the total students are boys.

It is given that :-

• The number of boys is 24.

Which means that :-

• 2/5 of x = 24.

———————————–

• Now let’s find the total strength!      ________________________

Hence :-

• There are 60 students in the class.
2. Hello

if 3/5 are girls, that means 2/5 are boys and boys are 24.

Let the total strength be ‘x’

then, 2/5 of x is 24.

=> 2x/5 = 24

=>. 2x = 24×5

=>. 2x = 120

=>. x = 120/2

=>. x = 60

Therefore, the total strength is 60.

Hope this helps 🙂
