Problem

Clarissa bought peanut butter cups to put on top of the brownies she made. Her recipe made 63 brownies, and the bag of peanut butter cups she bought states that there are approximately 9 servings in the bag and each serving is 7 peanut butter cups.
Clarissa says that this means she will have exactly enough peanut butter cups to put one piece on each brownie.
Is this a reasonable statement? Why or why not?
A. Yes. The number of peanut butter cups in the bag is found by multiplying 9 servings by 7 peanut butter cups per serving to get 63 peanut butter cups, which is exactly enough to put one piece on each brownie.
B. Yes. If the label says that there are approximately 9 servings in the bag and 7 peanut butter cups per serving, then there are exactly 63 peanut butter cups in every bag.
C. No. The number of servings listed on the bag is an estimate, so there are not necessarily exactly 63 peanut butter cups in the bag, and Clarissa may not have exactly enough peanut butter cups to put one on each brownie.
D. No. The number of peanut butter cups in the bag would be 7, plus, 9, equals, 16, which would not be enough peanut butter cups to put one on each brownie.
