# A school has 950 students. The ratio of female students to all students 48/95. How do you write and solve a proportion to find the number f of students that are female?

480.

#### Explanation:

As We know the ratio of female students to all students is $\frac{48}{95}$;

We can say that there are $95 x$ students and $48 x$ of them are female. [where $x \ne 0$ and it is the HCF of the two numbers]

Again, We know the number of all students is $950$.

So, $95 x = 950$

$\Rightarrow x = 10$

So, the number of female students = $48 \cdot x$ = $48 \cdot 10$ = 480.
