Jim and Paula jointly purchase the half sausage-half veggie pizza for $21. Suppose that Paula values veggie pizza three times as much as she values sausage pizza. Find the dollar value to Paula of each of the following pieces of pizza:

a. The veggie half of the pizza
b. The sausage half of the pizza

  • Math -

    V = Paula's value of veggie portion.
    S = Paula's value of sausage portion

    V + S = 21
    V = 3S
    4S = 21
    (b) S = $5.25
    (a) V = 15.75
