    Let the number of boys and girls participating in sports be 3x and 2x respectively.Then, 3x = 15 or x = 5.So, number of girls participating in sports = 2x = 10.Number of students not participating in sports = 60 - (15 + 10) = 35.Let number of boys not participating in sports be y.Then, number of girls not participating in sports = (35 -y).Therefore (35 - y) = y + 5 2y 30 y = 15.So, number of girls not participating in sports = (35 - 15) = 20.Hence, total number of girls in the class = (10 + 20) = 30.
