mangiate

Just encountered the phrase 'voi mangiate il pollo' - from what I've been taught shouldn't it be 'voi mangate il pollo'

Oh yea I got it wrong, I thought the infinitive ending was -iate but its only -ate so the we ending is -ate which makes mangiate :-). Gottit

Tu mangi is one person, voi mangiate is more than one.
