### QUESTION 1 of 10

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?

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.

How many strawberries will be there in half or 1/2 the number of strawberries below?

How many strawberries will be there in one quarter or 1/4 the number of strawberries below?
