Test: Rational World Problem Question #5

5.) A round chocolate cake is cut into eighths. A marble cake of the same size is cut into sixths. if Paulo eats three slices of chocolate cake and five slices of marble cake, how much cake is left over.

Paulo eats three slices from the chocolate cake and five slices from the marble cake.

The chocolate cake will have five pieces out of eight left while the marble cake will have one piece left out of six.
 *I'm not sure if I have to add both left overs together*

5/8 + 1/6= 

15/24 + 4/24 = 19/24
