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
