Default Help with Prime rib cook?

I think I may have posted this in the wrong catering thread earlier...any help you have would be greatly appreciated:

Her is my issue.... I am going to give a company a quote for smoked prime rib for 200 people (no sides, just the meat). But, I am not sure how many people you can serve with one prime rib. If I recall back in my restaurant days we could get nearly 20 people fed on one prime rib... still, I don't want to run out or appear to be skimping on the portions either...

Anyone have a formula for how much prime rib to purchase? and would you price it the same as some of you guys suggested on the Brisket pricing thread? 3 times the cost?

Thanks in advance for the advice
