Joel cut a pie into an equal number of pieces. He ate 1/3 of the pie. He was left with 8 pieces of the pie. How many pieces did he cut the pie into?

If he ate 1/3 of the pie and 8 pieces are left then 8 pieces = 2/3 of the pie and that means 4 pieces = 1/3 of the pie meaning 12 pieces = 3/3 of the pie so the **pie was originally cut into 12 pieces.**

Ate 1/3 so 2/3 remains 2/3 x = 8 pieces

x = 8 * 3/2 = 12 pieces originally

Hey there, Guest!

So Joel ate 1/3 of the pie, and there are 8 pieces left.

So, the 8 pieces should account for 2/3 of the pie.

8/2=4

Therefore, 4 is 1/3 of the pie.

4*3= 12

And that's our answer.

Hope this helped! :)
