Last year, April had a pizza party for all 36 students in her class. She expected everyone to eat 4 slices of pizza each. When the party was done, she had a lot of pizza left over. April observed three groups at the party.

**Group A**made up one-third of the class. Each person in this group ate half the number of slices April predicted everyone would eat.**Group B**made up half of the class. They each ate 2 slices. After that, each person shared one more slice with a friend in this group.**Group C**made up the remainder of the class. Each person in this group ate 4 slices each, as she expected.
