Find the Fractions
• Introduction

In this worksheet children must find a simple fraction of a number of objects.

Example

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.
