Math, Word Problems – Pizza Sharing


Pizza Sharing

There is a group of 10 people who are ordering pizza. If each person gets 3 slices and each pizza has 6 slices, how many pizzas should they order?

The correct ANSWER is ⇒ 5 pizzas


Let’s find the total number of slices needed first. 

We should multiply the number of people by the number of slices for each person, that is 

10 x 3 = 30 

Now we should find how many pizzas can provide us with 30 slices. For this, we should divide 30 by 6 as each pizza has 6 slices. 

30 / 6 = 5


Each person gets 3 slices, which means 1/2 of a pizza. When we multiply the number of people by a half  (10 x 1/2) we get 5 again.
