Answer:

#7/8#

Explanation:

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

#rArr1/2+3/8" is what they ate together"#

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

#rArr1/2=(1xx4)/(2xx4)=4/8#

#"Thus " 4/8+3/8=7/8" is the fraction of the pizza eaten by them"#
