1 Catriona is deciding how large of a cake to order for a party. She can choose from a 1-layer cake that serves
10 people, a 2-layer cake that serves 20 people, a 3-layer cake that serves 40 people, or a 4-layer cake that
serves 65 people. The cost of the cake increases with its size. Catriona has invited 80 friends to her party.
Of the 80 friends invited, 40% have responded that they will attend, 10% have responded that they might
attend, and 50% have responded that they cannot attend. Catriona wants to buy the least expensive cake that
will serve all of her guests at the party. Which cake should Catriona order?
A the 1-layer cake
B the 2-layer cake
C the 3-layer cake
D the 4-layer cake
