Scott and Mike share a pizza. Scott eats \(\frac{3}{8}\) of the pizza while Mike eats \(\frac{1}{2}\) of it. How much of the pizza is left?



The fraction of pizza eaten\(=\frac{3}{8} + \frac{1}{2}\). Expressing the two fractions using the common denominator 8, we can write the sum as \(\frac{3}{8} + \frac{4}{8} = \frac{7}{8}\). So the fraction of pizza left \(=1 - \frac{7}{8} = \frac{1}{8}\)
