How many pizzas are consumed each academic year by students at your school?
Solution 25E Suppose there are 5,000 students at my school. Let us assume that on an average each student consumes 1 pizza per month. Therefore, the number of pizzas consumed per month by all the students is = 5000 × 1 = 5,000. There are 12 months in an academic year. Therefore, the number of pizzas consumed each academic year is = 12 × 5,000 = 60,000.
