the maddox family took home 5/6 of a pizza from the restaurant where they dined. Thre next day, Mr. Maddox ate 1/3 of the leftover pizza. What fraction of a pizza did Mr. Maddox eat? How much pizza was remaining after Mr. Maddox ate some.
Multiply 1/3 by 2 to get 2/6 to make the denominator even and then do 5/6 - 2/6 it equals 3/6. When you multiply 1/3 by 2 do this 1/3 times 2/2.
