Jose and Michelle buy a pizza for $18 that is half pepperoni and half veggie. They cut the pizza into 8 slices. If Jose likes veggie three times as much as pepperoni, what is the value of a slice that is half pepperoni, half veggie?
$ 18 4 slices of P and 4 slices of V
If he thinks veggie is three times more valuable than pepperoni
then 4V(3) + 4P = 18
Each V = 3.375 P= 1.125 (in his sick mind)
1/2 V + 1/2 P = 2.25
