16 packages of muffins
1) First you need to find out how many muffins you need total. If each person has two muffins and there are 48 people, how muffins would that be? To find out, multiply 48 and 2 together.
48 * 2 = 96
So now we know that we must have 96 muffins in total
2) Now we have to find out how many muffin packages we will need. If there are 6 muffins in each package and we need to have 96 muffins in total, how many packages will we need? To find out, divide 96 by 6.
96/6 = 16
From this we know that you will need 16 packages
96 / 6 = 16
So they will need 16 packages of muffins.
