Number of pieces into which the cake has been cut = 8 Number of people that ate all the pieces = 6 Let us assume the division in which the cake has been divided for everyone to have an equal amount = x Then 6x = 8 x = 8/6    = 4/3    = 1 1/3 So it can seen that the cake has been divided in such a way that each part of the cake was 1 1/3. I hope the procedure is clear enough for you to understand.
