Answer:11/24 cup

Step-by-step explanation:What you would do is add 1/8 plus 1/3. To add two fractions, each much have the same denominator. In this case, you would need to multiply 1/8 into 3/24 by multiplying 1/8 by 3 on the denominator and numerator. For 1/3, multiply each the numerator and denominator by 8 getting the fraction 8/24. Now you can line up each fraction and add the numerators, keeping the denominator at 24. That answer would be 11/24. This cannot be simplified, so the answer is 11/24 cup of food.
