Three friends each bought two slices of pizza and a drink at the mall. If drinks cost \$0.75,
and the total of their order was \$11.25, how much did one slice of pizza cost?​

Here you want to find the total number of slices purchased, you can do this by 2*3=6.

Since we know they spent 0.75 each on a drink the total amount spent  on drinks was then 3*0.75=\$2.25

Simply deduct the total spent on drinks from the total for the order and then divide by number of purchased slices.

11.25=0.75*3+6*x

Remove drinks from total

10=6*x

thus

x=10/6

x=\$1.66
