Each carton contains 5/2 cups
Each serving uses 1/2 cup so from 1 carton the restaurant can make 5 servings.

Try 5*9 = 45 not enough
Try 5*19 = 95 not enough

Try 20*5 = 100, enough.

Answer choice C

(5/2)x = (98/2) = 19.6 ≈ 20

x = least number of cartons needed
(5/2) = size of each carton of milk-cream
98 = servings of ice cream
1/2 = amount of milk-cream per ice cream serving


Is this approach okay? I am happy to edit if needed.

Thanks!
