answer= 5/21 because if you want to subtract 5/7 by 1/3 you need to make the denominator the same.(21) then you multiply 5 and 1 then you get 5

The first day 2/7 of the pie is eaten which means that 7/7 - 2/7 = 5/7 remains. Next 1/3 of the remaining pie is eaten. So we need to find out how much is 1/3 of the remaining 5/7... 1/3 of 5/7 = 1/3 × 5/7 = 5/21 Mr Envy ate 5/21 of the pie. Thanks... now I want some pie! :P
