    We know that out of the 28 students 12 of them are boys. To find how many girls there are subtract 12 from 28

    28 – 12 = 16

    That means that there are 16 girls in the class

    Now you need a ratio of girls : boys so…

    16 : 12

    This can be further simplified to the following…

    4 : 3 (C)

    This means that for every four girls there are 3 boys

    Hope this helped!
