Step 1

Given:

Number of bread slices = 36 slices

Number of cheese slices = 45 slices

1 sandwich = 2 slices of bread + 3 slices of cheese

Step 2

Calculation for number of sandwiches based on bread slices:

Number of sandwiches = number of bread slices / 2

Number of sandwiches = 36/2 = 18 sandwiches.

Step 3

Calculation for number of sandwiches based on cheese slices:

Number of sandwiches = num...
