    We can start by using the ratio to find the fraction of girls in the school:

    girls : boys = 5 : 4

    This means that out of every 5 + 4 = 9 students, 5 of them are girls. So the fraction of girls is:

    5/9

    To find out how many students are girls in a school with 918 students, we can set up a proportion:

    5/9 = x/918

    where x is the number of girls.

    To solve for x, we can cross-multiply:

    5 × 918 = 9 × x

    4590 = 9x

    x = 4590/9

    x = 510

    Therefore, there are 510 girls in the school.
