## Math Problem of the Week 2
Your famous pumpkin pie is going to be a huge success this
week. You plan to sell each slice of pie
for $4.75. There are eight slices in one
pie.
Note: You will only sell slices of pie; you will not sell whole pies for a different amount than the price per slice. How many pies will you need to make if you hope to earn $2,660.00 from your pumpkin pie slices this week? |
