Mixed Numbers Word Problems

Here's two new word problems for you!

1. At my birthday party, the girls ate 3 1/2 pizzas and the boys ate 7 1/2 pizzas. How many pizzas were eaten at my party?

2. I bought 2 1/2 gallons of paint, but I only used 2/4 gallons of the paint. How much paint do I have left?
