for these kinds of problems you multiply the number not in the fraction (14) by the denominator (8) which equals 112. Then you add the numerator (1) to that number and then divide it by the denominator to get your improper fraction

Eight slices... per pizza box. (each pizza is cut up into 8 pieces) But you have FOURTEEN boxes with FULL pizzas and one box with just one slice. So how many total SLICES do you have? :)

14 pizzas with 8 slices each in them = 14 times 8 right? Now you have one box with only one sad lonely slice in it, so we add one because there is another slice, so 14 times 8, then plus 1

Yup. What is that number? What is 14 times 8 ... plus one? Put THAT number over 8, and you're done. :)
