Mother bought a cake and cut it into four equal pieces. I took one piece and my brother took another piece. What fraction of the cake was left? Express your answer in the simplest form.

You and your brother took a piece each, which means you took 2 pieces. Since there are only 4 pieces, there would only be 2 left after you both took one each. This means there are \(\frac{2}{4}\) (2 out of the four pieces) left, which you can also write as \(\frac{1}{2}\) when simplified :)
