There are 5 people sitting around the dinner table. Each person has 2/10 of a pie on their plate. How much pie is left? Explain

Well, 2/10 times 5 is 1; therefore, there will no more pie left because it has already been dispersed completely. However, if this is a trick question, there is 100% of the pie left because even though it is on their plate, they haven't eaten it. If its not a trick question, ignore this.


First we can reduce 2/10 to 1/5. Since each of 5 people get 1/5 of the pie... 5 × 1/5 = 5/5 = 1 whole (pie) There is no pie left :(
