A survey at a local school showed that 38% of the students chose chocolate ice cream as their favorite ice cream. Eight hundred students took the survey. How many chose chocolate ice cream?

laura,
38/100=x/800
set it up as a proportion so you cross multiply and get (38)(800)=100x
30400=100x
soooo 304 kids like chocolate
