    ratio of girls to boys   is      12:15        =   4:5
    the ratio of boys to girls   is    15:12   =  5: 4
     when you say that the ratio of girls to boys is   5:4
     you are actually saying that there are 5 girls to every 4 boys
           which is wrong
           so it is wrong to say that the ratio of girls to boys   is  5:4
1 4 1
We have 12 GIRLS, and 15 BOYS. The ratio would be 12:15 or 4:5. So 5:4 is wrong since it is supposed to be 4:5.
