    You're dividing 2 pies among 6 people, so 2/6, or 1/3 or a pie each.

    Can we pause to examine your reasoning? If each of 6 neighbor got 2 pies, would that not be a total of 12 pies? You should try to see the problem with your answer in order to better understand the material.

    Yes, I am trying to illustrate that dread56ace is not thinking out the question clearly. There is a logic here

    the question i not saying that each neighbor got 2 pies. its asking for a fraction because you have to divide only 2 pie between 6 people so what your saying doesn't even make any sense

    Ok, my first comment was directed at the asker. If you think I do not know that the answer is 1/3 you are not understanding my statement. I noticed dear ask the exact same type of question 3 times in a row, and so am trying to illustrate the general idea, not just give answers.

    all they needed was reassuring. they came up with the answer themselves. (:

    each pie has 12 slices in it. divide 12 by 6. 12 ÷ 6 = 2 therefore each neighbor gets two slices of pie. easier now?

    The graph was not in the question. The question is asked as I posted, read carefully. The first answer by sir sushi: 1/3 pies per person, is the correct one. If there is more information to the problem, or if it asked how many SLICES per person, then you may be correct. It does not, it asks the number of PIES per person.

    If each of 6 neighbor got 2 pies, would that not be a total of 12 pies? from turing

    yes, that is how many pies would have to exist in order for dread to be correct, hence their answer is wrong. their are only 2 pies TOTAL six neighbors share 2 pies. how much pie does each neighbor get. 2 each If the second part (after the period) seems to me an attempt at an answer by dread, as they had done in previous problems

    is there are no exact slices that you are given then the answer remains 1/3 like I said.

    "six neighbors share 2 pies. how much pie does each neighbor get" 2pies/6neighbors is 1/3 of a pie per person if there is more info to the problem besides that it should have been posted in the beginning

    The answer is 1/3 of 2 pies, 2 slices for each person. If anyone can't understand that, please stay in school.
