4 : 3 became 1 : 1 by adding 8 girls.
So 8 is equivalent to 1. so the answer is...

4 × 8 = 32
3 × 8 = 24
32 + 24 = 56
56 + 8 (Because of 8 girls) = 64
Therefore, there are 64 members.

4:3 is 32:24. to prove the statement is to add 8 to 24, which then turns to 32. making the ratio 32:32 or 1:1. 32 plus 32 is 64. there are 64 members in the club now.

Computed as: 28 boys and 21 girls plus additional 8 girls

Find the common factor:

(4x) : (3x+8) = 1: 1

4x  = 3x + 8

4x - 3x = 8

x = 8

Boys: 4x           ⇒  4(8) = 32

Girls: 3(8) + 8    ⇒  24 + 8 = 32

Ratio  ⇒  1:1

ANSWER: There are 32 boys and 32 girls, or a total of 64 club members.

Check:

Original number of boys and girls:

Boys: 4(8) = 32

Girls: 3(8) = 24

Original ratio ⇒  4:3

32:24 = 4:3

4:3 = 4:3  (True)

At the ratio of 4:3, there were 32 boys and 24 girls. At the ratio of 1:1, there are 64 boys and girls in total.

Multiply 4 and 3 by 8. You get 32 boys and 24 girls. To prove this, 32-24 is 8. Now the ratio is 32 boys : 32 girls. Which is 1:1 if simplified.

Ratio is from 4:3 then your club was added for about 8 girls then 1:1 is equals to 8 boys : 8 girls. Our ratio of boys and girls now will become 4:4 because we've added 1 to girls. From 4:4 it rounded to 1:1 or 32 boys : 32 girls. It became 32 because 1=8, so 4=32, how? 4×8=32. The answer in this problem is, there are 64 math club member now.

Since 8 members is equal to 1, we could times 8 by 4 and 3, then add 8 more. Therefore the answer is...
"There are now 64 members in the club."
