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

__Example__

How many apples will be there in one **third **of the number of apples below?

__Answer__

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

There are 4 apples in each group so one third of 12 is **4**

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

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

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

To find one **fifth** of a number, we divide by **5**.

To find one **sixth** of a number, we divide by **6**.
