Answer:Each student receives 3/5 th of pie

Step-by-step explanation:Solution:-– The available pie left, P = 1 4/5

– The pie each gets after division = x

– There are n = 3 people ( Jenny and her two friends ).

– The leftover pie is to be evenly divided between all three people. We will express the amount of pie each student receive “x” in terms of Left over pie “P”:

n*x = P

– We will plug in the values and solve for x:

3x = 1 4/5

3x = 1.8

x = 0.6 = 3/5 pie– Each student will receive

3/5 pie.
