Question

If 3 friends decide to share half a pizza equally, then each person’s share is __________ part of the pizza.

  1. 5    
  2. fraction numerator 9 over denominator 2 end fraction    
  3. fraction numerator 17 over denominator 2 end fraction    
  4. fraction numerator 9 over denominator 6 end fraction    

Hint:

To find the share of each person we need to divide the pizza by number of persons.

The correct answer is: fraction numerator 9 over denominator 2 end fraction



    To find the share of each person we need to divide the total pizza by number of persons.
    where as pizza to be shared  = 1 half pizza and number of persons sharing = 3
    So, share of pizza per person =   fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction divided by 3
    =fraction numerator 1 over denominator 2 end fraction cross times fraction numerator 1 over denominator 3 end fraction (Reciprocal of 3 is fraction numerator 1 over denominator 3 end fraction)
    equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator 6 end fraction part of pizza
    Therefore, the share of each person is 1 over 6 part of pizza.
