# The Hendricksons are in charge of bringing treats for 50 football players. They brought 3 coolers of popsicles and 2 coolers of ice cream sandwiches. Each player is going to randomly select a cooler from which to get their treat. Which statement best predicts how many football players will get a popsicle? Choose 1 answer: A. There will be exactly 20 football players who get a popsicle.B. There will be close to 20 football players but not exactly 20 who get a popsicle. C. There will be exactly 30 football players who get a popsicle. D. There will be close to 30 football players who get a popsicle but not exactly 30 who get a popsicle.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:DStep-by-step explanation:There are 5 coolers in total, so if you divide 50 by 5 you get 10. Then, since there are 3 cooloers of popsicles, you multiply 10 by 3 and you get 30. There is always a chance of getting something else, so it will be close to 30 but not exactly.
