1/3 + 1/5 =

once you get your answer. turn into decimals and compare with 0.50 since 1/2 is 0.50.

You have to add 1/3 and 1/5.

You need to get a common denominator of 15.

after you add the fractions, subtract from 1 for 1 whole pie. (You can write 1 as 15/15).

compare your answer with 1/2 to see if it is larger or smaller. (It is always good to be sure the denominators are the same which makes it easier to compare.

1/3 = 5/15

1/5 = 3/15

5/15 + 3/15 = 8/15 = 0.5333

They ate 0.533 of the pie.

There is less than half a pie remaining.

Reread the problem and your answer, minecraft.
