    What you have labelled "page 2" looks good. For "page 1" you are going to have to show some work. We are not a homework help service and you are skating the line.

    And please, when you post one of those make sure it's readable. "Page 2" was very difficult to read because it's too faint.

    Hi Stanley it seems like part of the issue you might be having with this problem is how to define some of the terms.

    First it might help you to define what a whole pan is.
    How many pieces make up a full pan?

    Writing in math is also different than writing in English, try to take the words in the question and rewrite them into numbers.

    For example: if a full pan contains 10 pieces and someone has half of those pieces how would you write that fraction?
    Half of 10 is 5, so that person has 5 out of those 10 pieces. We can write this by saying they have 5/10 of the pieces.

    Hopefully this helps.

    You have been given help. Have you understood what they were saying? And if you are expecting people to just answer the questions for you, do you not understand that that would NOT help you? You can turn in all the homework you want but if you don't understand it, you will fail the exams- and that is what teacher's base grades on. Contrary to popular opinion, teachers are not stupid and are aware that the homework you turn in is not necessarily done by you. But the exams are.

    The last thing in the world you want to do is fool your teacher into thinking that you know the material when you don't! That way, he/she won't continue teaching the material you need to learn.
