The ratio of boys to girls is $6 : 5$ or $\frac{6}{5}$

Explanation:

A ratio compares one amount to another, in this case boys to girls. To set up your ratio, write the number of boys to girls as a fraction

$\frac{b o y s}{g i r l s} = \frac{30}{25}$

and simplify by dividing numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor:

$\frac{30 \div 5}{25 \div 5} = \frac{6}{5}$

So your ratio is $\frac{6}{5}$ or written in ratio format $6 : 5$
