tony,
thank you. would you know how to draw that out in pictures. I have to use a picture. thank you

math  correction 
Ms. Sue,
I got it backwards. Sorry.
5/9
The most practical way of doing this is to give each person 1/2 sheet of paper. You'll have 1/2 piece left over in case someone messes up.
Draw 5 sheets of paper and divide each into two equal pieces.
