Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In this question, you are told that 3pounds of pasta serve 14 people. So in this case, 56 people will use how many pounds of pasta?

3 pounds = 14people

?               = 56people

=(56x3)/14

=12pounds

So the restaurant will need 12 pounds of pasta 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
