Jack is making vegetable dip for a party.
He needs 2/5 of a jar of mayonnaise to make it. The jar is 4/5 full. He drops it and only 1/5 is left.
a) Does he have enough left in the jar to make the dip? If not, how much more would he need?
b) How much of the jar spilled out?

a) He needs 2/5 so 1/5 is not enough. He would need 1/5 more.
b) 1/5 +3/5 would = 4/5 so he would have spilled 3/5
