1 Answer

  • 20 boys signed up
    # of girls who signed up was 195% of the number of boys who signed up

    Find 195% of 20:

    1.95 * 20 = 39

    So 39 girls signed up.

    To find out what percent of girls who signed up for the play attended the auditions, divide 26 to the total number of girls who signed up:

    26 / 39 = 0.666666667

    Multiply by 100:

    0.666666667 * 100 = 66.6666667%

    So approximately 66.67% or 66 2/3%
