# Orlando and Daisy ordered a pizza for lunch. Orlando ate 1/2 of the pizza, and Daisy ate 3/8 of the pizza. What fraction of the pizza did they eat together?

$\frac{7}{8}$

#### Explanation:

The sum of the fractions they ate separately will give the total they ate together.

$\Rightarrow \frac{1}{2} + \frac{3}{8} \text{ is what they ate together}$

To add the fractions we require to change them to the same denominators.

$\Rightarrow \frac{1}{2} = \frac{1 \times 4}{2 \times 4} = \frac{4}{8}$

$\text{Thus " 4/8+3/8=7/8" is the fraction of the pizza eaten by them}$
