# The ratio of male alligators to fermale alligators is three to two. If there is a total of 275 alligators, how many female alligators are there?

Add up the "parts" of the 3:2 ratio.

That amounts to "3 + 2 = 5" parts.

You can divide 275 by 5 to get 1 part.

To find the number of female alligators, divide the total number of alligators by the sum of the parts of the ratio representing females (2 parts out of 3 + 2 = 5 parts), then multiply by the number of female parts (2).

Number of female alligators = (2/5) * 275 = 110.

Therefore, there are 110 female alligators.
