Question

The ice cream shop has 80 different possible sundaes which include 1 flavor of ice cream, 1 syrup, and 1 candy topping. If the ice cream parlor has 5 different syrups and 4 different candy toppings to choose from, then how many flavors of ice cream does it have?

2 Answer

  • 80 = 5 x 4 x 4

    they have 4 flavors of icecream

    you get this by multiplying all the variables and how many different possibilities each variable can be

    so,
    5 different syrups (5)
    4 different candy toppings (4)

    from that you know 5 x 4 x ? = 80

    so 5 x 4 = 20, and 20 x 4 = 80

    so 4 different flavors of ice cream (4)
