Problem 7

The students in Mrs. Sawyer's class were asked to do a taste test of five kinds of candy. Each student chose one kind of candy. A bar graph of their preferences is shown. What percent of her class chose candy E?

[asy] real[] r={6, 8, 4, 2, 5}; int i; for(i=0; i<5; i=i+1) { filldraw((4i,0)--(4i+3,0)--(4i+3,2r[i])--(4i,2r[i])--cycle, black, black); } draw(origin--(19,0)--(19,16)--(0,16)--cycle, linewidth(0.9)); for(i=1; i<8; i=i+1) { draw((0,2i)--(19,2i)); } label("$0$", (0,2*0), W); label("$1$", (0,2*1), W); label("$2$", (0,2*2), W); label("$3$", (0,2*3), W); label("$4$", (0,2*4), W); label("$5$", (0,2*5), W); label("$6$", (0,2*6), W); label("$7$", (0,2*7), W); label("$8$", (0,2*8), W); label("$A$", (0*4+1.5, 0), S); label("$B$", (1*4+1.5, 0), S); label("$C$", (2*4+1.5, 0), S); label("$D$", (3*4+1.5, 0), S); label("$E$", (4*4+1.5, 0), S); label("SWEET TOOTH", (9.5,18), N); label("Kinds of candy", (9.5,-2), S); label(rotate(90)*"Number of students", (-2,8), W);[/asy]
