    Answer:

    The cost of each slice of pizza is $ 14.5  

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given as :

    The combined total of  2 slices and 1 drink cost = $ 31.50

    The price of each drink = $ 2.50

    Let The number of slices = S

    The number of drink = D

    According to question

    2 × S + 1 × D = $ 31.50

    ∵ 1 drink cost $ 2.50

    So,  2 × S + 1 × D = $ 31.50

    Or,  2 × S + 1 × $ 2.50 = $ 31.50

    Or,  2 × S  = $ 31.50 – $ 2.50

    Or , 2 × S  = $ 29

    ∴  S = \frac{29}{2} = $ 14.5

    Hence The cost of each slice of pizza is $ 14.5   Answer
