carmen's second growing post
4. Your last question deals with pizza. You need to explain which group gets the largest portion of pizza. All student groups get the same sized pizzas. It is up to you to cut them up so that they are shared equally.
Group 1 Sally Bob, Gidget and Biff Share 3 pizzas.
Group 2 Stan, Holly, Barry, Ben and Ichkabibble share 4 pizzas.
Group 3 Eric, Susy,James, Betty, Veronica and Moose share 5 pizzas.
Group 4 Paul, Alex, Chris, Jughead, Archie, Reggie, Mr. Wotherspoon and Midge share 7 pizzas.
How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?
Group 1 got 3/4 of the pizza each.
Group 2 got 4/5 of the pizza each.
Group 3 got 5/6 of the pizza each.
Group 4 got 7/8 of the pizza each.
Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?
i think group four gets the largest amount of pizza becuase they got small slices but more of them.

What strategies did you use in finding your answer.
We used circles (pizzas) and cut them into the amount of kids there were.
