Finding fractions of shapes means being able to understand that a shape split into two equal parts has been halved, that a shape split into four equal parts (perhaps by halving and then halving again) has been quartered and a shape split into three equal parts is in thirds. 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.

Use this quiz to practice finding fractions of shapes.

Question 1 12
34
25
14
There are four quarters. If I shaded two of them, it would be half of the shape
Question 2 23
14
13
12
One of the three equal parts is called a third
Question 3 24
14
34
12
If you shaded in 1 quarter, and then 2 more, you would have shaded 3 of the 4 quarters
Question 4 24
14
44
12
The whole shape is shaded – this is 4 quarters
Question 5 24
34
44
14
3 of the 4 quarters are not shaded, only one quarter is shaded
Question 6 24
They are both the same
12
34
12 is the same as 24 so 34 is greater
Question 7 24
14
12
34
The shape is divided into four equal sections – each one is a quarter. One is shaded
Question 8 34, 14, 12
14, 34, 12
12, 14, 34
14, 12, 34
12 is the same as 24
Question 9 8
6
5
10
Each shape has 4 quarters so there are 8 altogether
Question 10 5
3
6
9
Each shape has 3 thirds. There are 3 shapes so 3 x 3 = 9
