The cast of medium size pizza= $5

The cost of large size pizza=$8

Let  M medium size and L large size pizza  brought , then

`5M+8L<=40`                   (i)

Case when only  medium pizza brought

`5xxM+8xx0<=40`

`5M<=40`

`M<=40/5`                          

`M<=8`                             (ii)

Case when medium pizzas brought 4

`5xx4+8L<=40`

`20+8L<=40`

`8L<=20`

`L<=20/8`(iii)

Since either you brought or not brought ,therefore L can not be negative. Pizza not sold in fraction e.g  half pizza etc..therefore   L=2 .
