Mrs. Taylor is planning a pizza party for her students. She plans to purchase cheese pizza and pepperoni pizza for her students to enjoy. Cheese pizzas cost $8 each and pepperoni pizzas cost $11 each. She needs to purchase at least 12 pizzas, while spending no more than $180.

What are two combinations of cheese and pepperoni pizzas that Mrs. Taylor can purchase without exceeding her spending limit?

Let x represent the number of cheese pizzas purchased and y represent the number of pepperoni pizzas purchased.

  1. Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    She needs 12 pizzas

    x + y = 12

    She also can’t spend more than 180 dollars.

    8x + 11y < 180 She can get all 12 pizzas and have the bill come to 132 dollars

    11 * 12 = 132

    She could really be kind to her pocket book and get all cheese pizzas

    8*12 = 96 which saves her 36 dollars.

    So any number of either kind will do.

    (0,12) = 132

    (1,11) = 8*1 + 11*11 = 129

    and so on down the line
