    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.
