50 slices divided by 7 loaves (50/7) equals 7 slices per loaf, with a remainder of 1. So if Hope cuts seven slices from each loaf, she will have (7 loaves)*(7 slices per loaf) = 49 slices, which is one short of what she needs.
To get exactly 50 slices, Hope would need to cut 7 slices from 6 loaves (7*6=42 slices) and 8 slices from the last loaf to get 50 exactly (42+8 = 50).
If she cuts the same number of slices from each loaf, she will need to cut 8 slices per loaf, yielding 8*7 = 56 slices, so she gets 6 more slices than she needs.
