The local high school is hosting an ice cream social for new students. They record the ice cream choices of the students throughout the event. What is the probability that a male student chooses chocolate ice cream? http://media.apexlearning.com/Images/201306/27/1bfc6bac-b2a1-4149-8c45-7332a821274e.jpg

    What you have to do is take the total people (44) and the male chocolate (13). you would put the male chocolate/total people so it would be 13/44, or A

    @10115658 is wrong, as it is not just among male students, but among the whole student population at the ice cream social

    no. it does not say out of student male. It asks for what is the probability of a male asking for chocolate. It does not say, out of the male students, what is the probability and etc. Trust me on this. I have done many of these problems.

    I am not gonna squabble with you. If you are going to be self-righteous then be so. I don't care.
