A skating rink will sponsor a field trip for a school if at least 250 students out of the total 2340 sign up for it.A survey was conducted asking students which activity they wanted for the trip.
SKATING = 20 STUDENTS
BOWLING = 30 STUDENTS
GOING TO A MOVIE = 110
SWIMMING = 40
Based on the data above how many students are likely to choose skating?

right so 20/200 is .10 or 10%
given this we know that 10% of the students want skating
Multiply 10% by the total number of kids in the school and this will give the number of kids who want skating (In the entire school not just the survey)
