    How can I express the number of existing people in class vs. absent ones?

    I need to report to someone about the people shown up in class but can I say "the number of existing students is 8 and there are 10 more missing this morning."

    Thanks,

    Present: 8
    Absent: 10

    I think that class has a problem if over 50% of the students are failing to attend.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
