30 learners in a class consisting of boys and girls play hockey and swimming. The ratio for boys of hockey to swimming is 2:3. 6 girls play hockey and 4 swim. If the ration of girls to guys is 2:1, what is the ratio of hockey players to swimmers?

i got 8 swimmer boys, 12 hockey boys and the final ratio is 3:2. The ratio to for the boys of hockey to swimming isnt correct which is what is bugging me or is it a misunderstanding of the ratio.

THANKS!
