Dad is mom’s designated driver for two New Year’s Eve parties. Mom weighs 150 pounds, and she consumed a high fat dinner at home before drinking three glasses of Asti Spumante at each party she attends. Each serving of champagne is 5 ounces. In general people metabolize alcohol at the rate of 5 oz per hour. Mom and Dad stayed at Party Number One from 8:30-10:23 p.m. They arrived at Party Number Two at 10:45 p.m, where promptly donned bright metallic hats and rang in the New Year. Mom and Dad returned to their humble abode at 1:14 a.m.. Before slipping between the sheets, Mom downed one eight ounce glass of water with two ibuprofen tablets. How many pancakes and sausage links does Mom eat at 8:30 a.m. when her perky youngest daughter decides to surprise her with breakfast in bed?
