Julio ordered towo pizzas for dinner Friday. Dad ate 3/4 of one pizza, Jenny ate 1/8 of a pizza, Danny ate 1/4 of a pizza, and Mom ate 1/2 of a pizza. What fraction of a pizza was left for a midnight snack?
Mr. L answered to my question like this:
6/8 + 1/8 + 2/8 + Mom = ?/8
but I would like to know if the answer will be 13/8 = 1 5/8.
Is that right?
Thank you for helping me with this problem.

They've eaten 1 5/8 of the two pizzas.
1 8/8 - 1 5/8 = 3/8 left for the snack.
