The answer is 3.

#### Explanation:

Imagine a pizza, you slice it into 6 pieces, but you do not remove them form each other. . 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

$3$slices

#### Explanation:

The whole pizza$= \frac{1}{6} + \frac{1}{6} + \frac{1}{6} + \frac{1}{6} + \frac{1}{6} + \frac{1}{6}$six pieces

$: , = {\cancel{6}}^{1} / {\cancel{6}}^{1} = 1$whole pizza

John eats$\frac{1}{2} = \frac{1}{\cancel{2}} ^ 1 \times {\cancel{6}}^{3} / 6$

$\therefore = \frac{3}{6} = \frac{1}{6} + \frac{1}{6} + \frac{1}{6} = 3$slices
