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

 

Answer 

Half of  64  is

Half of
