Ice Cream

Make sure there is enough ice cream on hand. Learners try to find out how much ice cream to buy for a sports event. Scholars use a pie chart showing the percent of a sample of people who like different flavors of ice cream. Using the percentages, individuals calculate the number of tubs of ice cream to buy and then determine the profit they expect.
