suppose there are 2 pieces of the cake left over, but you don't know how many pieces were in the whole cake.Explain how you could find the number of pieces in the whole cake if Taylor told you 1/6 of the cake was left.You may show your work in a drawing.

if there were n pieces, you know that
1/6 n = 2
n = 12
