Question

Answer

                       <—-   Girls  ——–><- Boys—>                         

Group A       [ ——–u———][8][  u – 4  ]{4}        where {4}  is minus away

Group B       [————2u + 8 —————-](4)   where (4) is added on

(u+8)  + (2u+8)+ 4 (u-4) = 56

2u + 24 = 56

2u = 32 => u = 16

Total students who went to the zoo(Group A + Group B) = 2(2u + 8) = 2[2(16) + 8] = 80

Hi, the answer key stated that it’s 32.

The answer key is obviously wrong.   If there are already 56 girls, how can the total number of students (boys and girls) be 32 which is less than the total number of girls???
