# The number of girls and boys in a school is 525 and 675 respectively. What is the ratio of the boys and girls in the simplest form?

We use the ratio formula while comparing the relationship between two numbers or quantities.

## Answer: The ratio of boys and girls in the simplest form is 9 : 7.

Let's find the ratio of boys and girls in the simplest form.

**Explanation:**

Let 'b' be the number of boys and 'g' be the number of girls in the school.

Given that;

b = 675 and g = 525

The ratio of boys to girls would be:

b : g = 675 : 525

b : g = 9 : 7 {Taking 75 out as the common factor from both}

### Thus, the ratio of boys and girls in the simplest form is 9 : 7.
