Total number of students in class = 42

Let's assume the number of boys in class = x

Then number of girls in the class = (42 - x)

According to the question

3x/4 + 2(42 - x)/3 = 30

⇒ 3x/4 + 28 - 2x/3 = 30

⇒ 9x/12 - 8x/12 = 30 - 28

⇒ x/12 = 2

⇒ x = 2 × 12 = 24

Hence, number of boys in class = 24

Number of girls coming to school by bus = 2(42 - 24)/3 = 12
