  # Find Simple Fractions of a Number of Objects

In this worksheet, students will find simple fractions of a number of objects. Key stage:  KS 1

Curriculum topic:   Number: Fractions

Curriculum subtopic:   Recognise Fractions

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, you will need to 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 equal groups.            There are 4 apples in each group so one third or 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.

Can you find 1/2 of these bananas?              Share the bananas into 2 equal groups.              There are 7 bananas in each group, so 14 ÷ 2 = 7

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

Can you find 1/4 of these cakes?                    There are 20 cakes. If we share them into 4 equal groups, there will be 5 in each group: 20 ÷  4 = 5

So 1/4 of 20 is 5.
