Today, during lunch several students went out to eat pizza. Later, during class, they were arguing as to whom had eaten the most pizza. Sam said he ate the most pizza because he ate 1/2 of a pizza. But Mark disagreed and said he ate more because he ate 4 out of 16 slices of his pizza. Can you help settle this argument?
