Answer:3 people

Step-by-step explanation:$51/$17 = 3 people

– We know to start with $51 dollars because that is the total price of the meal.

– We also know each meal costs $17.

– Next, ask youself what we are trying to find? We are trying to find how many people are eating.

– Therefore to find that we need to take our starting amount $51 divided by $17 because that is the cost of 1 meal.

– $51/$17 = 3 people (whole cost/individual cost = # of people)

– To check this take 3 x 17 = 51 (Now we know it is correct)

– If you would like a further explanation please let me know.
