    Answer:

    590 students prefer pepperoni pizza based on the survey Ramiro conducted.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Ramiro randomly surveyed 60 students during one of his school’s basketball games and asked if they preferred cheese, pepperoni, or sausage pizza.

    From those surveyed, 39 students responded that they preferred pepperoni pizza.

    If Ramiro’s school has a total enrollment of 908 students.

    Now, to find the number of students in the school could be expected to prefer pepperoni pizza based on the survey Ramiro conducted.

    Total enrollment of students = 908.

    Let the students prefer pepperoni pizza based on the survey of 908 students be x.

    In 60 students surveyed 39 students responded that they preferred pepperoni pizza.

    So, 60 is equivalent to 39.

    Thus, 908 is equivalent to x.

    Now, to get the number of students by using cross multiplication method:

    \frac{60}{39} =\frac{908}{x}

    By cross multiplying we get:

    60x=908\times 39

    Dividing both sides by 60 we get:

    x=590.2.

    Approximately 590 students prefer pepperoni pizza.

    Therefore, 590 students prefer pepperoni pizza based on the survey Ramiro conducted.
