6 3/4 ÷ 26

= 27/4 ÷ 26

= mmmh, what do you think?

each student is to have 26 quarters = 26/4 and

we have 27/4 of them.

(I'll take the extra piece)

26 students and each gets 1/4 cake.

26 x 1/4 = 6 1/2 cales and Castor brought 6 3/4 cakes; therefore, he brought enough. There will be 1/4 cake left (enough for 1 more student).
