Gerri bought a small bag of peanuts and ate 1/2 of the peanuts on Monday. On Tuesday, she ate 1/2 of the peanuts that were left. On Wednesday, she ate 1/2 of the peanuts that were left from Tuesday. She ate the rest of the peanuts on Thursday. What fraction of the whole bag of peanuts did she eat on Thursday?

**Anonymous**, Monday, December 14, 2009 at 4:25pmThank you Mr. Pursley:

Is this how you would break it down.

1/2 + 1/2 = 1 (Monday and Tuesday)

1/2 of 1 = 1/2 (Wednesday)

Now, I am lost. Can you show me the break down of this problem.

Tuesday: 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4

Wednesday: 1/2 * 1/4 = 1/8
