Norberto has 9/10 of a pizza. The pizza will be divided equally among 6 people. How much pizza will each person get?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Split `9/10`  into 6 equal pieces.

This means to divide `9/10`  and `6.`

`9/10-: 6rArr 9/10-: 6/1`

Now multiply by the reciprocal of `6/1.`

`9/10* 1/6 = 9/60`

Now simplify 9/60 by dividing each by 3.

`9/60 = 3/20` .

Each person will receive `3/20`  of the pizza.
