    Answer:

    17.55 tubs

    Step-by-step explanation:

    step 1

    Find out the total scoops of ice cream in 234 regular cones and 156 large cones

    234(2)+156(3)=936\ scoops

    step 2

    Find out the weight of the total scoops

    we know that

    One scoop of ice cream is 3 ounces

    so

    936(3)=2,808\ ounces

    step 3

    Convert ounces to pounds

    Remember that

    1 pound = 16 ounces

    so

    To convert ounces to pounds divide by 16

    2,808/16=175.5\ pounds

    step 4

    Find out how many ice cream tubs Richard used to make the cones

    we know that

    A tub of ice cream weighs 10 pounds

    Divide the total weight in pounds by 10

    175.5/10=17.55\ tubs
