Textbook Problem

Use ratio and proportion to solve the following business situations.

The Pizza Palace makes 30 pizzas every 2 hours to accommodate the lunch crowd.

**a.** If lunch lasts 3 hours, how many pizzas does Pizza Palace make?

**b.** If each pizza can serve 4 people, how many people are served during the 3-hour lunch period?

**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The number of pizzas can be made in

Explanation

**Given Information:**

In the lunch timing the Pizza Place is make

**Formula used:**

To solve the proportional problem by using cross multiplication, follow the steps as mentioned below.

Step

Step2: Set the proportion in the ratio of

Step3: Multiply numerator of the left side ratio with the denominatior of right side ratio and place the product on one side of the equal sign.

Step4: Multiply denominatior of the left side ratio with the nominatior of right side ratio and place the product on other side of the equal sign.(step2 and step3 performing togeter is consider as cross multiplication)

Step5: Solve the unknown value.

**Calculation:**

Suppose that *X* be the number of pizzas made in

Consider the number of pizzas made in

The proportion is “

Apply cross multiplication, this gives,

**(b)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The number of people served in
