Mr. Fairfax ordered 3 large pizzas for a class party. Group A ate 6/6 ( that should look like a fraction) of the first pizza, and Group B ate 8/6 of the second pizza. Did Group A or B eat more pizza? Then later Group C ate all remaining slices of pizza. What fraction of the pizza did Group C eat?

  1. Group B couldn't eat 8/6 of a pizza. That is more than 1 pizza.

  2. Question is misleading. Group A ate 1 pizza. Group B ate 1 pizza + 2 slices. Group B ate more pizza. Group C would have ate 4/6 if they ate the rest of the pizza. This we can only assume because they did not provide enough information.

  3. Group C ate 4/6 of a pizza, or 2/3. Checks out: Grp A = 6/6 (1 pizza); Grp B = 8/6 (1 1/3 pizzas); Grp C = 2/3 of a pizza. The info provided means we can solve for the portions of pizzas consumed, but not in "units" of slices. Check by adding up the fractions: 18/6 = 3.

  7. I think group B ate more because 8/6 is more than 6/6
