    There are 30 students in class

    Solution:

    Let “x” be the total number of students in class

    Given that,

    The number of boys represents 54% of the class

    Therefore,

    Number of boys = 54 % of total number of students

    Number of boys = 54 % of x

    \text{Number of boys } = \frac{54}{100} \times x\\\\\text{Number of boys } = 0.54x

    Given that, There are 14 girls in a class

    Therefore,

    Number of girls = 14

    Thus we get,

    Number of boys + number of girls = total number of students

    0.54x + 14 =x

    x – 0.54x = 14

    0.46x = 14

    Divide both sides by 0.46

    x = 30.43 \approx 30

    Thus there are 30 students in class
