Hi, Amy,

You have such an interesting question.   Gail and Suzanne has somewhat
covered everything.

I had five children and always looked for family packages of meat with 7
chops.  If you look at family packages there seems to be 5 or 7 chops/steaks
in each package.

Eleven completely escapes me.  However, if you go to 13, there is a baker's
dozen of rolls, donuts, pastries.

Have fun. -Marielouise, for the Teacher2Teacher service
