Jimmy was studying populations in his history class. The class consisted of 16 girls and 13 boys. What percent more girls are there in the class than boys?

There are 16/29 = 55,17% of girls
There are 13/29 = 44,82% of boys
There are 55,17 - 44,82 = 10,35% more girls dan boys.

\( 16+13=29\\\\16-13=3\\\\ \begin{array}{ccc}29&-&100\%\\\\3&-& p\%\end{array}\\\\cross\ multiply\\\\29p=3\times100\\\\29p=300\ \ \ \ \ |divide\ both\ sides\ by\ 29\\\\p=\frac{300}{29}\\\\p=10\frac{10}{29}\\\\Answer: Girls\ there\ in\ the\ class\ is\ 10\frac{10}{29}\%\ more\ than\ boys. \)
