1.5:1.5:1.5=1
9 (teens) * 3/2 (flip)=9 * 2/3=6
6 (teens) * 3 (days)=18

The answer is 18 pizzas because the days don't get reduced. These teenagers are some slow ass eaters. Like who takes a day and a half to eat 1 pizza. I can gobble that down in 30 minutes

David is correct! 9/1.5 =6 teenagers. Multiply pizza & days with 6 which comes to 9. But time is 3 days which is double so double days & pizza. So the correct answer is 18.

Answer with Detailed Explanation:
Problem says 1. 5 people eat 1.5 Pizzas in 1.5 days
In 3 days, how many pizzas can 9 people eat?
Solution:
For every (additional) 1.5 people that attend this party, consider 1.5 additional pizzas gone.

1.5ppl =1.5 pizza

+

1.5ppl =1.5 pizza

+

1.5ppl =1.5 pizza

+

1.5ppl =1.5 pizza

+

1.5ppl =1.5 pizza

+

1.5ppl =1.5 pizza

So after 9 people eat with no one being greedy lol and going for seconds, 9 pizzas will be gone in the first 1.5 days
If the same 9 people come back again after 1.5 days and repeat, 9 additional pizzas will be gone in another 1.5 days.
Therefore, 9 people would have eaten 18 pizzas at the end of 3 days.
