In a class, the mean of boys' mark is 7.1 while the mean of girls' mark is 8.1. Their overall mean is 7.5. If there are 40 students in the class, determine:

a. The ratio of boys and girls

b. The number of boys and girls

I got this question from someone I tutored. I got the number of boys as 24 and the number of girls as 16. However, his teacher got vice-versa. Which one was right?
