Worksheet Overview

This activity is about finding a number halfway between two other numbers.



Write the number halfway between the two numbers.


number line 30 to 80



34   42





number line to show that 38 is halfway between 34 and 42


We move in four numbers, step by step from 34 and 42 to get to 38.


35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41


Sometimes, we don't have a number line to look at or it is hard to count the steps, so there is another way we can work it out. 


1) We find the difference between the two numbers: 42 - 34 = 8

2) We halve 8: 8 ÷ 2 = 4

3) We add 4 on to the lower number: 34 + 4 = 38 

So, 38 is the number halfway between 34 and 42.
