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.

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
