In this activity, you will use your knowledge of fractions and multiples to solve a range of problems.

Let's work through one together.

I ate **¼ **of a pie and served **⅛ **later to my guests.

What fraction was served to my guests?

**1st step: Convert**

Convert ¼ to eighths so both fractions have the same denominator and then will be easier to work with

¼ both numbers should be multiplied by 2 to convert to eighths as 4 x 2 = 8

So I ate and I saved ⅛ a total of ⅜

**2nd step: Subtract**

The total pie was originally a whole =

So ⅝ ** **of the pie was served to guests
