Answer:Susan spilled 1/6 of a gallon of lemonade.

Step-by-step explanation:Since Susan was carrying a pitcher that contained 2/3 of a gallon of lemonade to the table for lunch, and she slipped and spilled 1/4 of the lemonade in the pitcher, to determine what fraction of a gallon of lemonade did she spill the following calculation must be performed:

2/3 = 0.6666

0.666666 x 1/4 = X

0.166666 = X

0.166666 = 1/6

Therefore, Susan spilled 1/6 of a gallon of lemonade.
