Answer:

There are #8# girls and #16# boys in the class

Explanation:

The total number of students is #24#. From the ratio of girls to boys, we have #1:2#. Add the numbers in the ratio together. Take #24# and divide by that number.

#1+2 =3#
then, # 24/3# equals #8# per part

number of girls #8 xx 1 = 8#
number of boys # 8xx2 = 16#
