To ensure each guest gets 1 slice of peach pie, you would need to buy 5 pies. (38 guests * 1 slice per guest) / 8 slices per pie = 4.75 pies. Since you cannot buy a fraction of a pie, you would need to round up to the nearest whole number, which is 5. Therefore, you would need to buy 5 pies to ensure each guest gets 1 slice.
