  1. 21.6 slices

    and

    1.8 pizzas were left

    here's how, 3*12 is 36
    1 and 2/3 is the same as 1.6666666666
    so 36/1.6666666666 is 21.6

    now you take 21.6 (slices left) and divide it by 12 to find how many pizzas are left, so 21.6/12 is 1.8 (pizzas left)

  3. To find the slices we:
    (1) Multiply 3 by 12 = 36
    (2) Change the mixed fraction into an improper fraction = 5/3
    (3) Multiply the fraction by 12 => 5/3 * 12 = 20
    (4) Minus 20 from 36 to get 16 slices as your answer.

    To find the pizza leftover we just:
    (1) Minus 5/3 from 3 = 4/3
    (2) Change that into a mixed fraction to get 1 1/3 as the leftover pizzas.
