36.42 = 36 (approx., to whole number) adults prefer sugar or shortbread

Step-by-step explanation:

We are told that 1214 adults were sampled on survey involving the cookie preferences. According to the information provided to us, only 3% preferred sugar/shortbread. Then, the decimal value of this percentage is:

==> Percentage of adults that prefer sugar/shortbread multiply by the total number of adults that were sampled for the survey.

This is mathematically specify as:

==> 3% of 1214 = (3/100) * 1214

And this will give us:

===> 3642/100 = 36.42.

In sample term, we cannot have decimal point in human counts. This is the reason why I approximated the value to a whole number. Although the question want the answer in decimal.
