Question #a9c8c

1 Answer

Answer:

#354# males and #431# females.

Explanation:

Let's assume the number of male students is #x#. Therefore if there are #77# more females than males, the number of females is #x + 77#.

The total number of students is number of male #+# number of female students.

Therefore, the total number of students is

#x + x + 77 = 785#

So

#2x + 77 = 785#

Subtracting #77# from both sides gives us

#2x = 708#

Dividing both sides by #2# gives us the value of #x#, which is #354#.

Therefore, there are #354# males and #431# #(354 + 77)# females.
