If there are 24 equal-sized pieces, each gets 1/3 of them, which is 8 pieces. You can do the cutting up into 24 pieces in different ways.

-If you take 24 divided by three it would equal up to eight.

-Then if you multiply eight times three it would equal up to 24.

-Finally if you take 8 and put it on top of 24 it would make a fraction.
