• so basically, there is 7 pizzas, and those pizzas are cut into 12 pieces each so now you multiply 7 x 12 which gives you 84. So now you know that in total there are 84 slices of pizza. Now for the people, there are 16 people who are coming to the party, and each person is going to eat 4 pieces of pizza. To find out how many pieces of pizza are going to be eaten at the party, we will multiply 16 x 4 because there is 16 people and 4 pieces per person, so this equation gives us 64 now we know that in total 64 pieces of pizza will be eaten at the party. and finally we take our 84 pieces of pizza and subtract/eat 64 of those pieces and what is left of that is the answer. the answer is 20
I really hope that helped!
