Advanced maths

Fifteen 12-year-old boys finish 8 pizzas in approx 6 mins 34 secs. Each pizza is divided in 12 slices.

a) how many slices per boy per second?

b) how much football cake can they possibly eat after that?

Well, if my brain isn't entirely broken (and it may be partially so from the cold I've got) then I'd say
a) a hair under 1 slice per minute, assuming they ate equal amounts.
b) ALL of it. Looks super tasty after all!
