Step-by-step explanation:

The population of that country in 2006 was 500 million. What was the average number of

gallons of fruit juice consumed per person in the country in 2006? Use pencil and paper. Using the per

person amount from this problem, about how many gallons would your class consume?

Total consumption in 2006 = 2.11 billion gallons (2,110,000,000)

Population of country in 2006 = 500,000,000

Average number of gallons of fruit juice consumed per person in the country in 2006:

Total consumption / total population

2,110,000,000 / 500,000,000

= 4.22 gallons per person

Number of gallons class will consume :

Assume number of students in class = 15

Hence, class consumption equals:

Average consumption per person × number of students in class :

4.22 × 15 = 63.3 gallons
