In this worksheet children must find a simple fraction of a number of objects.
How many apples will be there in one third of the number of apples below?
To find one third of a number of objects we divide them into 3 groups.
There are 4 apples in each group so one third of 12 is 4
This is the same as working out 12 ÷ 3 = 4
To find one half of a number, we divide by 2.
To find one quarter of a number, we divide by 4.
To find one fifth of a number, we divide by 5.
To find one sixth of a number, we divide by 6.
