OK. So, 7/10 of a band is boys and there are 28 of them. you want to know what fraction the girls are? Well, the fraction of girls in the band would be 3/10. If you wanted to find the number of girls from the given information, you should do it like this:
I hope this answers the question.
7*28=196
196/10=19.6
to solve these you multiply the top and divide the bottom
I just relalized mister martinez is correct
7/10 x=28
.7x=28
divide both sides by .7
x=28/.7
x=40
so the total are 40 and 40-28=12
so 12 girls in the band.
I was focusing on the title, sorry.
