# Jeremy and his friends ate 5/8 of a pie. If the pie was cut into eight pieces, how much pie is left over?

Nov 19, 2016

$\frac{3}{8}$ of the pie is left over.
$1$ pie = $\frac{8}{8}$ of a pie.
Jeremy and his friends ate (and thus "subtracted") $\frac{5}{8}$ of the pie.
$\frac{8}{8} - \frac{5}{8} = \frac{8 - 5}{8} = \frac{3}{8}$
