**Last summer, at Camp Okey-Fun-Okey, the ratio of the number of boy campers to the number of girl campers was 8:7.**

If there were a total of 195 campers, how many boy campers were there?

How many girl campers?

**Answer**

First, we're going to add the two ratios.

This is our 8+7=15.

We now divide 195 (total campers) by 15, to make individual copies of our ratio.

195/15=13.

We can fit our ratio, 8:7, into 195 13 times.

We now multiply both numbers by 13 for the exact number of campers.

8x13=104, and 7x13=91.

We can check our math by adding the two final numbers.

104+91=195.

Since our number matches the total number of campers, we know it is correct.

There are 104 boy campers and 91 girls.
