Enzo and Eric are sharing a pie. If Enzo eats 1/3 of the pie and Eric eats 1/5 of the pie, is there more than 1/2 of the pie remaining?
1/3 = 10/30
1/5 = 6/30
1/2 = 15/30
What do you think?
So the answer is no because there is only 1/2 left and nothing more than that?
You're right that the answer is no.
10/30 + 6/30 = 16/30
That is more than 15/30 so less than 1/2 the pie remains.
no there is only 14/30 of it left
