Answer:64 slices

Step-by-step explanation:The first step to solving this is to find out how many slices of bread there were in total. We know that each loaf of bread had 16 slices, and we know that there were 8 loaves. To get the amount of slices, we multiply the amount of slices in each loaf by the number of loaves there are.

16⋅8=128 slices of bread in total

Now that we know the total number of slices, we need to find how many sandwiches they made. If they used two slices per sandwich, we would divided the total number of bread slices by two.

128÷2=64.
