Ratio of Students

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?


Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.

Glad I was the one who's right.
