Worksheet Overview

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



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.
