A restaurant buys fruit in cans containing 3\(\frac{1}{2}\)cups of fruit each. If the restaurant uses 1/2 cup of the fruit in each serving of its fruit compote, what is the least number of cans needed to prepare 60 servings of the compote ?
(A) 7
(B) 8
(C) 9
(D) 10
(E) 12
1/2 cup makes one serving, so 3\(\frac{1}{2}\) or 7/2 cups will make 7 servings.
For 60 servings, we need:-
7*8= 56 servings
and 1 more can would add remaining 4 servings; hence 8+1 = 9 cans are needed.
