  1. Yep. Since one teenager can eat a pizza a day, then 12 teens should be able to eat 36 pizzas in 3 days.

  5. Missed the half of the pizza

    1.5 teens eat 1.5 pizza in 1.5 days
    3 teens eat 3 pizzas in 1.5 days
    3 teens eat 6 pizzas in 3 days
    12 teens eat 24 pizzas in 3 days

  6. The answer is 24.
    You can set the problem up as fractions.
    1.5 teens/1.5 pizzas = 1.5 days

    the teens to pizza are 1:1. So you would say 1/1=1.5
    then change it to 12/12 = 1.5 and you would multiple by 2 to get 3 days.
    so 12*2 = 24
