Option 4 : 4 : 3

**Given**

Total children in school = 286

Boys : Girls = 8 : 5

**Calculation**

Let the number of boys and girls be x

⇒ 8x + 5x = 286

⇒ 13x = 286

⇒ x = 22

Boys = 22 × 8 = 176

Girls = 5 × 22 = 110

Here there are 22 more girls

Boys : girls = 176 : (110 + 22)

Boys : Girls = 176 : 132

Boys : Girls = 4 : 3
