If the ratio of boys to girls is 3:2 and there are 25 students in a class, how do you make equal ratios to show how many students in the class are boys and how many are girls?

The ratio of 15 boys to 10 girls is equivalent to the ratio of 3:2



$5$ groups in the ratio $3:2$ implies that:

$5\times (3:2)$

$= (5\times 3):(5\times 2)$

$= 15:10$
