If two pounds of meat will serve 5 people, how many pounds will be needed to serve 13 people?

Answers

The answer is 5.2 pounds of meat. To find this just divide the number of people by what the information you have about servings. 13/5=2.6(number of sets), then you multiply that by how many pounds are in each set. 2.6 sets* 2 pounds per set= 5.2 pounds.
I hope this helped!
Look at it this way, you need 2lbs of meat for 5 people. You need 4lbs for 10 people. You'll need 5.5lbs of meat.
He answer would be 4 1/2 pounds of meat to serve at least 12 to 13 people
First, divide 13 by 5.

13/5=2.6'

Then, multiply 2.6 by 2.

2.6*2=5.2

It takes 5.2 pounds of meat to serve 13 people.

Your answer should be 10

because for every 2 pounds five people are served.

So I did 5 * 5 = 25

Then 2 * 5 = 10

Hope you find this helpful!

Brainliest is appreciated!:D

11 is the answer maybe. Not 100 percent sure though.

5.2 pound of meat is your answer 
2 pounds / 5 people = x pounds / 13 people
cross multiply and simplify to get x = 5.2 pounds
So, 5.2 pounds of meat will be needed to serve 13 people.

5.2 pounds because for 10 ppl you need 4 pounds and for 3 you need 1.2 because 5/2 equals 0.4 which you have to multiply by 3 to get the three people which gets you 1.2 so all together 1.2+4=5.2 pounds of meat.
