Question

An ice cream store sells ice cream in a cup or in a cone. It sells 7 cones for every 3 cups of ice cream it sells. If 220 people buy ice cream at the store today, how may cones would the store sell?

2 Answer

  • I m not sure of my answer but i think its correct...


    7 cones/ 3 cups of ice cream.

    The nearest multiple of 3 to 220 is 219

     one cone per cup = 7/3 ( 7 cones for 3 cups )

    Total no of cups sold = 219*  One cone per cup
                                         = 219* 7/3 
                                         = 511 cones

    Therefore, the number of cones the store would sell is 511 cones.



  • 3cups+7cones=10 altogether
    22x10= 220 customers
    22x7=154
    3x22=66
    So 154 cones
