 What Is Your Favorite Pet?

Dear Pet Detective,

You have a very important job.  You must find out what the world's three most popular pets are.   Is it a cat? Could it be a dog?  How about an elephant or a pig?

To complete this assignment, Pet Detective, you will need to create a survey and ask as many people as possible about their favorite pets.  When you have taken your survey, you will need to show the information in a graph so that we can see the results.

Finally, Pet Detective, when you are done, answer these questions:

1)  If you were going to open a pet food store, what kind of pet food would you sell?  Explain why.

2)  What is the most unpopular pet to own?  Why do you think so?

3)  Do you own a pet or pets?  What are they?  Are they one of the most popular pets?

Be sure to use your MathWorld Interactive six problem-solving steps. Have fun!
