Answer

The minimum charge per slice is $1.70

Work Step by Step

The pizza costs $\$5.40$ to make. The manager wants to make at least $\$4.80$ from the sale of each pizza. Therefore, the pizza must be sold for at least $\$5.40 + \$4.80$ which is $\$10.20$ Since there are 6 slices for each pizza, we can find the minimum charge per slice: $\frac{\$10.20}{6} = \$1.70$
