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.

Hmm.. Hard question; but i hope my conjecture is right. First, you can cut the land strips into 24ths. Each person will get 8 pieces of it. Another way is to do the same thing but each person gets 3 pieces. By the way I have the same question for my homework, so I'm not exactly sure if this answer is right. Overall, I hope this helped!
