Lia opened a box of pizza. Inside there was 6/8 of the whole pizza.

Lia ate 2/3 of the pizza and gave the rest of what was left to her brother.

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
