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)
