    Answer:

    114 boys

    Step-by-step explanation:

    This question can be solved using a rule of three.

    For each 2 boys, there are 3 girls on the center. So, how many boys will be there when there are 171 girls?

    2 boys – 3 girls

    x boys – 171 girls

    3x = 2*171

    Simplifying both sides by 3

    x = 2*57 = 114

    There are 114 boys there
