Richard works at an ice cream shop. Regular cones get two scoops of ice cream; large cones get three scoops. One hot Saturday, Richard scooped 234 regular cones and 156 large cones. One scoop of ice cream is 3 ounces. A tub of ice cream weights 10 pounds. How many tubs of ice cream did Richard use to make the cones?

17.55 tubs since you would take the amount of reg. cones times 2 to get the amount of scoops for the regular cones then add that to the sum of large cone times 3 and there are 16 oz in a pound so you would divide the total amount of scoops by 16 to convert it to pounds then you would divide that by ten to get the amount of tubs since there are 10 pounds in a tub
