Ummm... there are potentially an infinite number of slices of pizza, so you cannot possibly figure it out.

By #2 Jen ate less than 4, and by #5 Jen ate more than 2, therefore Jen ate 3 slices.  

 

By #3 John ate less than 3 so he ate either 0, 1, or 2. 

 

Kev ate > 1 so a minimum of 2 but there's no upper limit.

Em ate > 3 so a minimum of 4 but there's no upper limit. 

 

There's no way to determine the size of the pizza.
