• Susie,
Number one you need to find how many plants come from 1 packet of seeds. Once you find that, then you can find how many plants are in 6 packs of seeds. Try to organize your information in a double number line or t-chart.
Number 2, you know the ratio of boys to girls, 9 to 4, use this information to create a tape diagram. Then divide 26 evenly into the 9 pieces for boys and 4 pieces for girls.
Number 3, use the same method as number one to help you solve.

I hope this helps.
