I have 5 friends. I bought three pizzas (all the same size). One was divided into 4 equal parts, the 2nd was divided into 6 equal parts and the 3rd pizza was divided into 8 equal parts. Is there any way I can show how to share these pieces so that each of of us gets the same amount? If not, show how much each person gets.

  1. 4 + 6+ 8 parts or slices

    18 slice/5 people

    Each person can have 3 slices with 3 slices left over

    If you want to share the extra 3 slices with 5 people then each person gets another 3/5 of a slice.
