Finding fractions of numbers means being able to understand that a number split into two equal groups has been halved, and that a number split into four equal groups has been quartered. Children should recognize the equivalence of two quarters equaling one half, and also that three quarters is greater than a half, but less than the whole. Using division is key when working out and finding fractions of whole numbers.

Try this quiz to see how well you do with finding fractions of numbers.

1.

Two quarters is the same as...

If you put two quarters together, they make a half

2.

What is ^{1}⁄_{2} of 12?

10

24

4

6

6 + 6 = 12 so ^{1}⁄_{2} of 12 is 6

3.

Which is greater: half of 10 or a quarter of 20?

They are both the same

Half of 10

A quarter of 20

Five

Half of 10 is 5 and a quarter of 20 is also 5!

4.

What is half of 8?

4

2

16

8

4 + 4 = 8 so half of 8 is 4

5.

What is ^{1}⁄_{4} of 20?

4

5

10

40

20 ÷ 4 = 5 so ^{1}⁄_{4} of 20 is 5

6.

What is a quarter of 12?

6

4

3

48

12 divided into 4 equal parts is 3

7.

To find half of a number, you should divide it by...

1

4

2

8

Both halves must be equal and identical

8.

What is 20 halved?

8

12

2

10

Halving a number is the same as dividing it by 2

9.

How do you find a quarter of a number?

Divide it by 4

Divide it by 2

Multiply it by 4

Multiply it by 2

Find a quarter by dividing the number into 4 equal parts

10.

Which is greater: ^{0}⁄_{4} ^{1}⁄_{4} ^{2}⁄_{4} or ^{3}⁄_{4}?

Three of the quarters would be more than two, one or none of them!
