    Answer:

    48

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the no. of boys be 7x and no. of girls be 5x.

    Given,

    Number of girls + 8 = Number of boys

    5x + 8 = 7x

    7x – 5x = 8

    2x = 8

    x = 4.

    Number of boys = 7x = 7 × 4 = 28

    Number of girls = 5x = 5 × 4 = 20

    Total strength = 28 + 20 = 48

    Hope this helps
