Ava took a poll to find what kinds of sports her friends play. Here is what she found: 1/3 play soccer, 1/8 play baseball, and 1/5 play volleyball. Which sport does the greatest number of her friends play? Which sport does the least number of her friends play? If 15 friends are in Ava's poll how many of them play volleyball?

Soccer  =  1/3  X  15  = 5

base ball  = 1/8  X  15 = 1.88

volley ball = 1/5  X 13  =  3

greatest number of her friends play  = Soccer  5

Least number of her friends play  =  Base ball  = 1.88  =  2 (rounded up)
