# a. You are planning a party for your bowling league at Upper Crust Pizza. How many eight-slice pizzas must you order to feed 24 women who eat 2 1 8 slices each and 20 men who eat 3 3 4 slices each? Round to the nearest whole pizza.b. If each pizza costs $11.89, what is the total cost? Pizza, Pizza! According to industry sources, each man, woman, and child in America eats an average of 46 slices (23 pounds) of pizza per year. The equivalent of 100 acres of pizza is consumed daily, or about 350 slices per second. (a) To determine To calculate: The number of eight slice pizzas one must order to feed 24 women who eat 218 slices each and 20 men who eat 334 slices each. Explanation Given information: The number of women is 24 who eat 218 slices each and the number of men is 20 who eat 334 slices each. Formula used: Step-1 Divide the numerator by denominator. Step-2 Add a decimal point and zeros, as necessary, to the numerator. Numerator(dividend)Denominator(divisor)=DenominatorNumerator Calculation: Consider the number of women is 24 who eat 218 slices each and the number of men is 20 who eat 334 slices each. Use the formula, Numerator(dividend)Denominator(divisor)=DenominatorNumerator Total number of slices eaten by 20 men is n, n=20×334=20×(3+43)=20×(3 (b) To determine To Calculate: The total costs of 16 pizzas when each pizza cost is$11.89.
