Francis post for question 12

(12) Dave interviewed a number of students in his school regarding their favorite ice cream. Dave claimed that exactly 40% of the 37 students interviewed liked vanilla the best. Is it possible to determine whether David's claim is correct? Why or why not?

40/100 14.8/37
40/100x37=14.8

It is not possible that David's claim is right because 40% equals to 14.8 out of 37 people and there cant be a person that is .8 .
