Chez Moi makes tomato soup in a pot that holds 4.5 litres. Chez Moi serves soup to customers in bowls that hold ¼ of one litre of soup.
The cost to make one pot of tomato soup is $11.50. This includes what you, the owner of Chez Moi, must pay to buy the ingredients to make the soup, in addition to paying for parts of the electricity, tools, and people required to make the soup.
One bowl of tomato soup at Chez Moi costs a customer $3.50.
How much profit does Chez Moi earn on one pot of tomato soup?
Assume all bowls were sold to customers.
Hint: profit = money earned - cost

Chez Moi makes fresh biscuits on Saturday and Sunday. It takes 20 minutes to bake a batch of biscuits. Each biscuit pan holds 24 biscuits. Two pans can fit into the oven to bake at the same time. Chez Moi owns 6 biscuit pans and has one oven to use for the biscuits.
What is the largest number of biscuits Chez Moi can bake in one morning between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m.?
(Hint: assume the pans can be washed and filled with batter when they are not baking in time to be baked immediately, and that the first batch is ready to go by 6 a.m. In other words, there is no wasted time between one baking session and the next.)
