C. Use real numbers. 1/4 of the number of girls is 10, so are 60 students. The number of girls is 4X10=40 and the number of boys is 60-40=20. 20/40 = 1/2

Hello from the GMAT Club BumpBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

We're told that, in a class, 1/4 of the number of girls is equal to 1/6 of the total number of students. We're asked for the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls in the class.

Attached is a visual that should help. I used the classic "algebra to simplify, plug in numbers to finish" method. Please ignore the 15 x 60...it is from another question.
