The answer is:  4:3

Let the number of boys be x

The number of girls be x + 4
The total number of students = 28

Add:

x + x + 4 = 28
2x + 4 = 28
2x = 28 - 4
2x = 24

2x/2 = 24/2
x = 12

The number of girls (12 + 4) is 16.
The number of boy is 12.

The ratio of girls to boys:
 16:12  or  in lowest term,   4:3
