    9/12, or 3/4 if you simply the answer

    Hi there,

    let a be the remaining slices

    so that a+1+2=12

    1: slice eaten by Winter

    2: slice eaten by Fall

    both ate 3 slices

    and we have a total of 12 slices

    so the result should be 12-3=9 slices remaining

    with algebra with have a+3=12

    subtract 3 from both sides



    Hence 9 slices left
