Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I mean, personally, I make my invitations sized proportionally to the amount of guests, but I'm not sure if everyone does.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just ask yourself: what is the amount of food, number of party favors, dimension of the intvitations and the cost for 1, 2, 3, ... guests, if its linear then you have proportionality.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually the problem is not wellposed ;) Ok, so lets start with something simple. If 1 Person eats 1 kg of salat, how much will N persons eat?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You wonder how much salad you have to buy for the party. All you know is, that every guest will eat 1 kg and you invite N guests. But if that is too abstract, try with 5 guests first.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you must think about each option separately. Of course C is one correct answer. But what about a e.g.?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh god... sigh. The answer is obviously c or d. The size of the invitations cannot be proportional to any of the other factors besides the cost of the party. Common sense will let you know that larger/smaller dimensions will cost more or less. This question is an insult to math.
