For the end of year party, Mt. Rose Middle School ordered $134$ pizzas. There were eight  fewer combo pizzas than there were pepperoni pizzas. There were three times as many combo pizzas as cheese pizzas. Use the 5-D Process to determine how many of each kind of pizza were ordered.

See MC2 4-12 for help in setting up the 5-D process.

Set up an expression using the information given in the problem. Define the combo, pepperoni, and cheese pizzas by using a variable and illustrating their relationships as noted in the problem.
For example, cheese pizzas could be $X$ and as a result, combo pizzas would be $3X$.
