After a pizza party, Julia has parts of five pizzas left over. The shaded areas represent the slices that were not eaten. If each pizza was originally cut up into 12 pieces:

  1. What fraction of pizza A is left?

    How many pieces are left (shaded)?

  2. If all of the pieces were put together, how many whole pizzas could she make? How many extra pieces would she have?

    Which parts can be put together to make a whole pizza?

    Explain how there are 2 whole pieces plus one extra piece left.

  3. Julia wants to write the amount of pizza left over as a single fraction. How could she do this?

    How many slices are there in one pizza? This number will be the denominator, and the number of slices left over will be the numerator.
