a) 12 b) 24

Work Step by Step

a) A total of 125 servings are required. To find the number of loins needed divide total number of servings with the number of servings from one loin. $125\div11=11\frac{4}{11}\approx12$ While the number of obtained is not a whole number, there cannot be 4/11 of a loin being exported thus this number is rounded up to the nearest whole number. b} There are 12 loins. As 2 end cuts can be obtained from a single loin, $12\times2=24$ end cuts can be obtained from 12 loins
