Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Pizzas teacher A were cut into larger slicesStep-by-step explanation:step 1Letx-----> the total area of one pizzawe know thatTeacher APizzas were cut into 6 equal slices soThe area of each slice is [tex]\frac{1}{6}x[/tex]Teacher BPizzas were cut into 8 equal slices soThe area of each slice is [tex]\frac{1}{8}x[/tex]step 2The area of the slice teacher A multiply by 4/4 [tex]\frac{1*4}{6*4}x=\frac{4}{24}x[/tex]The area of the slice teacher B multiply by 3/3 [tex]\frac{1*3}{8*3}x=\frac{3}{24}x[/tex]step 3Compare the fractions[tex]\frac{4}{24}x>\frac{3}{24}x[/tex]thereforePizzas teacher A were cut into larger slices
