No, Billy the Chef does not have enough pasta for all 16 guests. He only has enough pasta for 14 guests.

(Maybe if he hadn't invited those guys from across the street he would have enough. -_-)

He can't cook 16 dishes, he can only cook 14 since that's how much he can make

Chef Billy does not have enough pasta to feed all 16 guest. He can only feed 14 guest with 3 1/2 packages of pasta. He will need 4 packages of pasta Inorder to feed all 16 guest.

3 1/2 ÷ 1/4 = 14
4÷1/4 = 16

No, Billy does not have enough pasta for all 16 guest because you would need 4 packages of pasta to serve all 16 guests, not 3 1/2 packages of pasta. He only has enough pasta for 14 guests, so the other two will sadly starve.

Billy can cook for 14 guests only because he does not have enough packages of pasta to make for 16 guest.

Billy would NOT have enough packages of pasta to make for 16 guests. Sadly, he can only make pastas for only 14 people.

**(The other two can just order a glass of water- at least it doesn't have calories in it.)
