Question:

Why is 1/5 larger than 1/7?

Yan L.

Imagine you have two pizza that are the same size. If you split the first pizza into 5 equal parts to share among 5 people, and split the second pizza into 7 equal parts to share among 7 people, which pizza would have larger slices? Of course, it is the first pizza! You would get larger slices when you share among 5 people because when the whole is split into 5 equal parts, there are less slices so each slice is bigger!

### Subject:English as a Second Language

Question:

A lot of people confuse "it's" with "its". What is the difference?

Yan L.

"It's" is short for "It is" and we use "its" when we talk about something that belongs to a person, place, or object.
