Answer:1/8

Step-by-step explanation:What we wanna do first is make all denominators the same. Multiply 3/4 by 2/2 and 1/2 by 4/4. This will get you 6/8 and 4/8. Now we have all the fractions:

6/8. 4/8, 7/8

We know Jack ate 7/8 of his pizza, so there’s 1/8 pizza left for him.

Luis ate 3/4, which became 6/8, so there’s 2/8 of pizza left.

Tyrone ate 1/2 of his pizza, which is 4/8, so there is 4/8 left.

Add: 1/8 + 2/8 + 4/8 = 7/8

This means that there is 1/8 slice left because 7/8 of the whole pizza was eaten.

8/8 – 7/8 = 1/8

4/4 – 3/4 = 1/4

2/2 – 1/2 = 1/2

1/4 * 2/2 = 2/8

1/2 * 4/4 = 4/8

1/8 + 2/8 + 4/8 = 7/8 of a pizza was left
