# How Many Girls are There? If

280 oranges are divided amongst 50 girls and boys so that each boy gets 5 oranges but each girl gets 7. How many girls are there?

- 35
- 25
- 15
- 5

**Answer: (3) 15
Explanation:-
**Let be the number of boys = X

Then, the number of girls = 50 – X

According to the question,

5X + 7(50 – X) = 280

5X + 350 – 7X = 280

– 2X = 280 – 350

2X = 70

X = 70/2 = 35

Thus, the number of boys is 35 and number of girls is 50 – 35 = 15

Hence, the number of girl is 15.
