lily is having a sleep over with 2 friends. They order 1 party size submarine sandwich and it is cut into 12 equal parts.They eat the entire sandwich but each person has a different number of parts. What is one way the sandwich was shared ? write a equation to represent your answer equal to 12/12. is there a different way the friends could have shared the sandwich?
Well, one way the sandwich could be eaten was that one person could eat 2 parts, one could eat 4 parts, and one could eat 6 parts. The fraction forms of these would be 2/12, 4/12, and 6/12. If you add these up, you would get 12/12. Another way they could have shared the sandwich is one could eat 3 parts, one could eat 4 parts, and one could eat 5 parts. The fraction forms of these would be 3/12, 4/12, and 5/12. If you add them up, you would get 12/12. I hope this helped!!! :)
