1. Ms. Gibbs, Mr. Williams, and Cleveland came over to my house for a pizza party.  We bought a really giant pizza.  It was divided into sixteen pieces! I ate two pieces, Ms. Gibbs ate one more piece than I did, Cleveland at one more piece than Ms. Gibbs did and Mr. Williams ate two more pieces than Cleveland did.   After we ate our pizza there was a knock at the door.  It was Mr. Jackson.   “Any pizza left over for me?” he asked.

First, write an equation show what fraction of the pizza was eaten before Mr.  Jackson came over:
