cafeteria sells pepperoni and vegetarian pizza. Pepperoni slices are $3 and vegetarian are $2.50. Every day they sell at least 3 times as many pepperoni slices as they do vegRotarian. Total sales is never more than 250 slices. 
Let p represent the number of pepperoni slices sold
let v represent the number of vegetarian slices sold.
