In this video, I show you how to use Excel to solve a 2-part fraction story problem: A class reached their reading goal for the month and are being rewarded with a pizza party!

You’re given the following information:
-Each student gets ¼ of a pizza
-There are 21 students in the class

How many full pizzas need to be ordered?

How much pizza will be left over after each student gets their share?

Using Excel, we can easily format the cells to handle fractions and break down the question into simple parts to solve for the answers. See how I did it in this video!
