Lia ate  2/3  of the pizza which means she left  1/3 .

 

So her brother received  1/3  of  6/8  of a whole pizza.

 

That is,

 

the amount her brother received  =  1/3 * 6/8  of a whole pizza

 

\(\dfrac13\times\dfrac68\ =\ \dfrac{1\times6}{3\times8}\ =\ \dfrac{6}{24 }\ =\ \dfrac{1}{4}\)

 

So...

 

her brother received  1/4  of a whole pizza
