Sheet # 28 Critical Thinking

Name: _____________________ Date_____________

You are planning a class party. You must spend between $2.00 and $2.50 per person on food. There are 18 students in your class. The class has decided that each person will be served 2 slices of pizza. You must use all items from the table.

**Item**
**Price**
**Servings**

Use the above table to calculate how many of each item you will buy and what the cost will be. Explain why you bought the quantities of each item that you did.

**Answers for Sheet # 28**

Amount of money you have = 18 x $2 = 36 (minimum)

Maximum money you have = 18 x $2.50 = $45

**Pizza**
**Cookies**
**Juice**
**Total**
$37.00
$39.50

You can make other combinations so long you stay between $36 and $45 and still serve all students.
