    Answer: 15 girls

    Step-by-step explanation:

    27 – 3 = 24

    24/2 = 12

    12 boys

    12 + 3 = 15

    15 girls

    15+ 12 = 27

    Answer: 15

    Step-by-step explanation: Personally, I would try finding the number of boys first and then subtract the number of total students by the number of boys. To find the boys, you need to subtract three from 27 since those 3 are girls which leaves you with 24. It says there is half the number of boys than girls when you subtract 3 so 24 divided by 2 is 12. The number of boys is 12 so now all you have left to do is subtract 27-12 to find the number of girls, which is 15. I hope this helped you and sorry if it’s really long πŸ™‚
