    I am a 3rd grader and I was given the same math question on March 5, 2014. My answer was and still is Marty's pizza was bigger than Luis. My teacher said that my answer was wrong because Luis ate 5/6 of his pizza. I tried to reason with her because the problem stated that Marty ate more than Luis. She did not change my math grade because she insisted that my answer is wrong and stating that 5/6 is greater than 4/6. Since I don’t want to be disrespectful, I accepted my grade “90/A”.

    Your teacher is an idiot. If Marty's pizza is larger, than eating 4/6 of that pizza is more than 5/6 of a smaller pizza. Of course, Marty's pizza must be much bigger. Just imagine this: 4/6 of an entire city is greater than 5/6 of a house, for example...By the way, what city is your school in, so I can be sure to avoid it in the future...

    I wonder if banana would rather have 4/6 of Bill Gates wealth or 5/6 of a destitute's wealth

    Your teacher is a moron. The problem clearly states "Marty ate more pizza." So either Marty had a bigger pizza or whoever created this problem was lying.

    martys pizza is bigger because the little it is the bigger pieces
