If the ratio of girls to boys is 5:4, then out of the total of 108 students, 5/9 are girls and 4/9 are boys. Therefore, the number of girls is 108 x (5/9) = 60.

With a ratio of 7:4 there are 7+4 = 11 parts - 7 parts are girls, 4 parts are boys. 77 students / 11 parts = 7 students/part Girls are 7 parts → girls = 7 students/part × 7 parts = 49 students For the ratio of girls : students, you can either use the figure just found: 49 : 77 = 7 : 11, or just go back to the original ratio: 11 parts are students, 7 of those parts are girls → ratio girls : students = 7 : 11
