3cups+7cones=10 altogether 22x10= 220 customers 22x7=154 3x22=66 So 154 cones

I m not sure of my answer but i think its correct... 7 cones/ 3 cups of ice cream. The nearest multiple of 3 to 220 is 219 one cone per cup = 7/3 ( 7 cones for 3 cups ) Total no of cups sold = 219* One cone per cup = 219* 7/3 = 511 cones Therefore, the number of cones the store would sell is 511 cones.
