For the question

"Juanita made two sandwiches. She cut the sandwiches into 4 pieces each. She has 5 pieces left. What fraction of the sandwiches are left?"

Shouldn't the answer be^{5}/8? Yet in my math textbook it says the answer is 1^{1}⁄4. I've attached a scan of the textbook page.

It seems that both answers make sense, yet if that were true, then^{5}/8 would equal to 1^{1}⁄4 but that is obviously not the case, so I'm really confused. Could someone explain to me which answer is correct? Thanks in advance!
