A recent order was being readied to go out on the next flight.

Five types of pizza were being shipped:

59 reindeer sausage and onion; 59 pizzas were to have reindeer sausage;

25 Polynesian chicken and green peppers; Chicken topped 5/28 of the pizza; 5/28*140 = 25

A pepperoni, reindeer sausage, and bacon; 10% of the pizzas were to have pepperoni.

B green peppers, tomatoes, and onions;

C bacon and tomatoes.

Sets of toppings had to be placed on 140 pizzas.

40% of the pizzas were to have tomatoes; 40% of 140 = 56 B+C=56

34 pizzas were to have bacon; A+C=34

How many of the five types of pizzas were to be made? How many sets of toppings had to be prepared? Solve, show your work, label your answers and explain your work.

A+B+C= 140-59-25 = 56

B+C=56

A+C=34

A+B+2C=90 but A+B+C=56 subtract and you get C=34

so

B+34=56 B=22

A+34=34 A=0

oh dear, I have done something wrong. I must have been drinking Chrismas cheer with all those reindeer around you really could not blame me.
