If you are sharing something evenly among 5 people, each person will get 1/5 of the whole thing.

Here the "whole thing" you are sharing is 2/3 of a pizza, so each person gets

1/5 * 2/3

= (1*2)/(5*3) = 2/15

2/3 of a pizza is equally divided among 5 people.

What's 2/3 divided by 5?

(2/3) / (5/1)

= (2/3) * (1/5)

= 2/15.

So, each person gets 2/15 of the whole pizza.

Check: 2/15 of a pizza * 5 = 2/3 of a pizza.

I hope that helps. :)

2/15. Multiply 5/1x2/3=10/15. Divide 10/15 5 ways and you get 2/5+2/5+2/5+2/5+2/5=10/15. 10/15=2/3
