# Finding the average of this problem

There are 100 people in a room. Each one them can eat 4 pies in total. The maximum amount of pies that can be eaten is 400 pies. If 172 pies were eaten, what is the average pie eaten by per person?

I have trouble coming up with the correct algorithm to solve this problem.

• $\frac{172}{100}$? Does it have anything to do with the pie eating capacity of the players? – zoli Mar 12 '17 at 8:21
