Proportion question?

My homework problem:
For every girl taking classes at the martial arts school, there are 3 boys who are taking classes at the school. If there are 236 students taking classes, write and solve a proportion to show the number of boys taking classes at the school.  
I can solve this using percentages (25% and 75%), but don't know how to do it using a proportion.
