Amy, April, Matt and Austin's word problem answer

Question # 2

Question: You and six friends have ordered pizza for the party. If the total for the pizza will be $22.75, how much money (estimate to the dollar) does each person have to contribute?

Answer: They will all pitch in $3.25.

Solution: If you divide $22.75 by 7, you can get the answer because everyone is trying to pay the equal amount of share to the pizza including you. If you estimate the answer first, it would be alot easier because you can figure out if the answer is close to the estimate and you can tell if your right or wrong.

the answer is wrong because you did not estimate to the nearest dollar. the correct is 23/7=3. the anwer is three dollars
