At the Pizza Dude restaurant, a 12 -in. pizza costs $5.40 to make, and the manager wants to make at least$ 4.80 from the sale of each pizza. If the pizza will be sold by the slice and each pizza is cut into 6 pieces, what is the minimum charge per slice?

To determine

To find:

The minimum charge per slice of pizza.

Explanation

The cost of making a 12-in pizza is $5.40. If each pizza is cut into 6 slices, then the price of making each slice of pizza is 5.412 which is equal to$0.45.

The manager wants to make a profit of $4.80 from the sale of each pizza. Thus, the sale price of the entire pizza should be equal to the sum of cost price (price of making each pizza) and the profit after the sale of each pizza. Sale price of each pizza =$5.40+$4.80=$10.20
