Pat and Eric bought a large pizza that has 12 slices.Jane and Eric ate all the pizza .If Jane ate 4/6 slices, how much did Eric eat? Who ate more pizza?
Answer.12= 4/6

math 
Reiny,
Your answer of
"Answer.12= 4/6" makes no sense, 12 ≠ 4/6,
nor does it actually answer the question.
Jane ate 4/6 or 8/12 of the pizza.
Since the pizza had 12 slices, she ate 8 of them.
So Eric must have eaten 4 slices.
