Answer: 1) Pizzeria must sell 78 pizzas for receiving the bonus.

2) The number of pizzas sold is decreased by Approximately 7.69 %.

Step-by-step explanation:

1) The number of pizza sold yesterday = 65,

The target for receiving the bonus = 20% more than the number of pizza sold yesterday

= 20% more than 65,

= 65 + 20% of 65 ( 1% = 0.01 ⇒ 20% = 0.2 )

= 65 + 0.2 × 65

= 65 + 13 = 78.

Hence, they must sell 78 pizzas for receiving the bonus.

2) If the actual number of pizza sold today = 60

⇒ Total reduction in the number of pizza = 65 – 60

= 5

Thus, the percentage decrease in the number of pizza
