In this worksheet children must find a simple fraction of a number of objects.

__Example__

How many apples will be there in one **third or 1/3 **of the number of apples below?

__Answer__

To find one **third** **or 1/3 **of a number of objects we share or divide them into **3** groups.

There are 4 apples in each group so one third, 1/3 of 12 is **4**

This is the same as working out 12 ÷ 3 =** 4**

To find one **half or 1/2** of a number, we divide by **2**.

To find one **quarter** **or 1/4 **of a number, we divide by **4**.
