Since the ice-cream parlor serves a total of 80 scoops of which 25% are in cups
It is clear that 20 cups and 60 cones are served.

There are a total of 2 flavors - Chocolate and Vanilla.
Since there are 12 vanilla cups, the remaining 8 are chocolate cups
Similarly since there are 16 chocolate cones, the remaining 44 are vanilla cones

Since we have been asked to find the total number of scoops of Vanilla, it must be 44+12 =56(Option E)

Given: 16 chocolate cones and 12 vanilla cups; and number of cones is 60 (75% of the total) and cups is 20
-- 16 + x vanilla cones = 60 cones
-- x = 44
-- 44 + 12 = 56 total scoops of ice cream

A. 40
B. 44
C. 48
D. 52
E. 56


We can determine that 80 x 0.25 = 20 scoops were in cups and thus 60 were in cones.

Since 16 cones were chocolate, 60 - 16 = 44 cones were vanilla.

Since the parlor also served 12 vanilla cups, we see that the total number of vanilla scoops was 44 + 12 = 56 scoops.

Answer: E
