Paul Loves math and enjoys cool math
games. Paul opened his own pizza shop
(which was very small) on a quiet street
where he lived. But now pauls got a problem
can you help paul Figure out the problem!!!!!
Paul needs to get $100.00 by Friday or else
the street owners are closing down the
shop. It is Tuesday if he doesn’t have the
money by friday night Pauls Pizza will be no
more. He has four days!!
The Other Problem
Paul still wants to sell the pizzas at a decent
price, So people will buy. But he needs to
have them at a good enough price so he can
get enough money!!! He’s selling halves ,
quarters,and eighths. So he needs a
different price for all of them. What could he
Solving the Paul Problem
½ of one of the pizza’s could cost $10
¼ of one of the pizza’s could cost $5
⅛ of one of the pizza’s could cost $2
Will paul have enough with these prices to
pay for the rent??
5 people bought the ⅛ slice that is $10.00
1 person bought the ½ slice that is $10.00
1 person bought the ¼ slice that is $ 5.00
$10.00 Paul got $25.00 on Tuesday
3 people bought the ¼ slice so thats $15.00
1 person bought the ½ slice so thats $10.00
$15.00 Paul got $25.00 on Wednesday
Paul was sick so he didn’t raise any money
on Thursday he only has $50.00 that means
he has to make $50.00 on Friday.
3 people bought the ½ slice that is $30.00
4 people bought the ¼ slice that is $20.00
$30.00 Paul got $50.00 on Friday
The Final Day or Not
Paul raised enough money and is able to
keep his shop!!! Maybe come check out his
