    If you have one whole circle, let's call it's size 1. \[1 = \frac{6}{6}\]If 5/6 of that are shaded, then 1/6 is not shaded.

    If you have a pizza with 6 slices, and 5 are pepperoni and 1 is sausage then... 5/6 of the pizza is pepperoni, and 1/6 of the pizza is sausage. Does that make sense?

    "What percent of the circle is NOT shaded?" 1/6 not shaded = 0.167 percent? 0.167*100=16.7%

    If 5 of these slices are pepperoni, then we can say this pizza is 5/6 ("five sixths") pepperoni. 5 pepperoni out of 6 total.
