I mean, personally, I make my invitations sized proportionally to the amount of guests, but I'm not sure if everyone does.

Just 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.

Actually the problem is not well-posed ;-) Ok, so lets start with something simple. If 1 Person eats 1 kg of salat, how much will N persons eat?

? DONT UNDERSTAND

  • nowhereman
You 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.

Please don't write in all caps, it's like shouting! Do you know that exactly one answer is correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
nowhereman
  • nowhereman
So you must think about each option separately. Of course C is one correct answer. But what about a e.g.?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont need one
nowhereman
  • nowhereman
mmh, I don't understand you...
anonymous

wait what is e.g

for example

i dont need an example though

Oh 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.
