Mackenzie's Test Question 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?

Dave claimed that EXACTLY 40% of the students liked vanilla ice cream. Dave's claim was incorrect because 14.8 is not a whole number, you can't have 8 tenths of a person:P
