Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

To work out a quarter of a number, we can use a quick trick.

We halve the number and then halve that answer.

Example

Use this table to find 64 ÷ 4 by finding A and B.

Half of  64  is
 A
Half of
 A
is
 B
A quarter of  64  is
 B
64 ÷ 4 =
 B

Half of  64  is
 32
Half of
 32
is
 16
A quarter of  64  is
 16
64 ÷ 4 =
 16

So A is 32 and B is 16.
