Pizza Party Question

Posted by AKey on December 8, 2006


Ok..let’s figure out how many pizzas we need to order. There are 22 students in class. Let’s say that each of you wants 2 pieces each. If Domino’s cuts their large pizzas into 10 slices, how many pizzas should we order so everyone can have at least 2 pieces? Explain how you got your answer.

    We think the answer is 5 boxes because if you multiply 22 by 2 it equals 4 but there’s 2 people left.
