How would you like to try try eating a pizza that’s a mile long?! In 2016 in Naples, Italy, 250 pizza chefs got together to make 6,082-foot long pizza. The pizza used more than 2 *tons* of flour, 2 tons of cheese, and 3,500 pounds of tomatoes. It was then rolled through 5 giant ovens, each of which needed 25 people to run it. The whole thing weighed 5 tons in total!

*Wee ones:* If the pizza used flour, cheese, tomatoes and olive oil, how many ingredients is that?

*Little kids:* If the pizza used about 2 tons each of flour, cheese and tomatoes, how many tons of food is that? *Bonus:* A ton is 2,000 pounds. How many pounds is 6 tons? Count up by 2s (2,000s) to find out!

*Big kids:* If a person can eat 2 pounds of pizza before feeling way too full, how many people can that 6-ton pizza feed? (Again, a ton has 2,000 pounds) *Bonus:* If they gave you 28 slices of your own, and you eat 1 slice per day starting on a Monday, on what day of the week do you eat the last one?

*The sky’s the limit:* If the 250 pizza makers wanted to work together in equal-sized groups, how many ways could they have split up evenly?

Answers:*Wee ones:* 4 ingredients.

*Little kids:* 6 tons. *Bonus:* 12,000 pounds!

*Big kids:* 6,000 people. *Bonus:* On a Sunday. You have an even number of sets of 7, and remember, each set starting on a Monday (day 1) finishes on a Sunday (day 7).

*The sky’s the limit:* 8 ways, because 250 has a lot of “factors” (numbers that divide into it evenly). They could form:

1 group of 250 people

2 groups of 125 people

5 groups of 50

10 groups of 25

25 groups of 10

50 groups of 5

125 groups of 2

250 groups of 1.
