The answer is 3.


Imagine a pizza, you slice it into 6 pieces, but you do not remove them form each other.madeitinpaint . Now if you take any of the line I have sliced through the pizza, it will be half of the pizza.

you can also look at it like this: 6 is the whole pizza, what is the half of 6? 3. So there will be three pieces you have

The whole pizza#=1/6+1/6+1/6+1/6+1/6+1/6#six pieces

#:,=cancel6^1/cancel6^1=1#whole pizza

John eats#1/2=1/cancel2^1xxcancel6^3/6#
