**Question description**

Mr. Carlucci brought 8 3/4 pound pepperoni for large sandwiches. He cut the pepperoni into 1/12 pound slices. A skateboarder bumped into his table and 2 7/12 pound of the pepperoni fell on the ground and was eaten by 3 dogs. Does Mr. Carlucci have enough pepperoni left to make 74 sandwiches if he puts one slice on each sandwich? By how much is he over or under the amount of pepperoni he needs? Show your work.
