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
