$12$ boys

#### Explanation:

We know that there is a ratio of $3 : 2$ of girls:boys

We know that there are $18$ girls so we can see that the $3$ in the ratio refers to $18$ people.

Know that we know that $3$ means $18$ people, we can figure out that $1$ would mean $6$ people.

As there are $2$ boys in the ratio, there are $6 \times 2$ boys in the class.
