On Friday night, Janyia ate pizza for dinner and had ½ of the pizza left over. On Saturday, she ate ¼ of what was left. How much pizza did Janyia eat on that Saturday?

Students, don't believe these trolls who just pull an answer out of their ,,, ahem ,,, hat and post it.

I believe their intention is to trick you into falling for their lies, to get you in trouble with your teacher.

My recommendation is not to believe anything unless the poster shows __how__ s/he obtained the answer.

*On Saturday, she ate ¼ of what was left. *

*How much pizza did Janyia eat on that Saturday?*

(1 / 4) of (1 / 2) = (1 / 4) • (1 / 2) = **(1 / 8) of a pizza** Janyia ate on Saturday

If the pizza was pie-cut into 8 slices, Janyia ate 4 slices on Friday.

That left the other 4 slices, left over until Saturday.

On Saturday Janyia ate 1/4 of what was left, i.e., 1 slice.

That 1 slice was 1/8 of the whole pizza.

When they cut a pizza into squares, it's called party-cut. I hate that.
