# pete had 12 peanuts. he gave bill 1/3. how many does bill have

## (2/3) * 12 = ?

## To find out how many peanuts Bill has after Pete gave him 1/3 of his peanuts, we can follow these steps:

Step 1: Calculate the number of peanuts Pete gave to Bill:

1/3 of 12 = (1/3) x 12 = 4

Step 2: Subtract the number of peanuts Pete gave from the total number of peanuts Bill originally had:

Bill's initial peanuts - peanuts Pete gave to Bill = Bill's remaining peanuts

12 - 4 = 8

Therefore, Bill has 8 peanuts after Pete gave him 1/3 of his peanuts.

## To find out how many peanuts Bill has, we need to calculate 1/3 of the total peanuts Pete had (12 peanuts).

To calculate 1/3 of a number, we divide that number by 3.

Dividing 12 by 3 gives us 4.

So, Bill has 4 peanuts.
