Sally wants to buy some chips for her party. The bags of chips at Kroger are sold in 10.5 cup bags. Sally thinks that each guest will eat about 3/4 cup of chips. If she bought two bags of chips how many guests can she feed?

I got an answer of two guest, but I think that is wrong. So, I really don't know.

    Divide: 21 / 0.75 = ?
