$354$ 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

$2 x + 77 = 785$

Subtracting $77$ from both sides gives us

$2 x = 708$

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

Therefore, there are $354$ males and $431$ $\left(354 + 77\right)$ females.
