    Division equation is:

    \frac{c}{8} = 352

    There are 2816 calories in whole pizza

    Solution:

    Given that,

    A 14- inch pepperoni pizza is sliced into 8 equal pieces

    One slice contained 352 calories

    Therefore,

    1 slice = 352 calories

    Let “c” be the calories

    Given that there are 8 equal pieces

    Therefore, calories in 8 pieces are:

    Calories in 8 pieces = 8 x calories in 1 piece

    c = 8 \times 352

    Thus the division equation is:

    \frac{c}{8} = 352

    Therefore,

    c = 352 \times 8 = 2816

    Thus there are 2816 calories in whole pizza
