You and your friends want to make money so that you can buy equipment for your soccer team. You decide to ask the high school soccer coach if you can sell pizzas at the high school soccer games this year. The coach considers your request and feels like it’s a good idea.
$6 - $5 = $1
you sold it for $6.
Draw 8 pizzas that are cut into 8 slices each. Figure out how much you would earn if you sold all 8 pizzas.
$8 - $5 = $3
What fraction equals 8 pizzas and has 8 pieces in each pizza?
There are 64 pieces total and there are 8 pieces in each whole pizza.
This time you cut the pizza into 20 pieces. Figure out how much you would earn for each pizza at the next game.
You shouldn’t have gotten so greedy!

Draw a picture of what the pizza will look like and figure out how many pieces there will be of each topping.
