# pizza :}

3 friends share 4/5 of a pizza. what fraction of pizza does each person get?

The amount to share is 4/5

Since the amount will be shared between 3 friends, the amount must be divided between 3 people.

So each person must get 4/5 divided by 3

(4/5) / 3 = (4/5) / (3/1) = 4/5 * 1/3 = (4 * 1)/ ( 5 * 3)= 4/15

Each person will eat 4/15.

Indeed, 4/15 + 4/15 + 4/15 = 12/15 = 4/5 ( divide 12 and 15 by 3 to get 4/5)
