During a contest you and a pal each won ribbons for 1/3 of the pieces you entered into a contest.You won 2 ribbons and he won 3.Why?

If you each won a third of what you entered, it means you entered 6 ribbons and your friend entered 9 ribbons. 2 is a 1/3 of 6 and 3 is a third of 9. The total, 5, is a third of the total ribbons entered, which is 6 + 9=15.
