    Answer:

    6 slices

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The full pizza is 12 pieces.  Divide 12 by 4 to find out how much she ate on Thursday.   1/4 of 12 is 3 so she ate 3 slices on Thursday.  Subtract 3 from 12 to find out how much was left for the next day.  There were 9 slices the next day.  Next, divide 9 by 3 to find out what 1/3 of 9 is.  1/3 of 9 is 3 so subtract 3 from the 9 slices.  6 slices are the original pizza remain.
