The pie chart illustrates the sales of ice cream today.

The number of vanilla and the number of chocolate ice creams sold were the same.

The stall sold 60 strawberry ice creams.

How many chocolate ice creams were sold?

## Student Solutions

$90$ chocolate ice creams were sold.

The angle occupied by the 'chocolate' sector is $1/2(360^{\circ} - 90^{\circ}) = 135^{\circ}$.

This is $1.5$ times bigger than the 'strawberry' sector, so the number of chocolate ice creams sold is $1.5 \times 60 = 90$.
