Views

I ate=$\frac{7}{16}$

My friend ate =$\frac{4}{16}$

we both eat

$\frac{7}{16}+\frac{4}{16}=\frac{7+4}{16}=\frac{11}{16}$

the watermelon more I eat than my friend is

$\frac{7}{16}-\frac{4}{16}=\frac{7-4}{16}=\frac{3}{16}$

The portion of the watermelon remained

$1-\frac{11}{16}=\frac{16-11}{16}=\frac{5}{16}$
