Fraction of a Number9,079 Reads
To answer this question, let's first draw 6 stars.
Since our denominator is 2, we need to split up these stars into 2 even groups:
And since our numerator is 1, we need to look at one of the groups.
Let's take a look at a few examples of fractions of numbers:
Let's draw 12 stars and split them into 3 groups (because 3 is the denominator).
Since the numerator is 1, we'll circle 1 group and count up those stars:
There are 4 stars in 1 group.
We need to draw 8 stars and split them up into 4 groups (because 4 is the denominator).
Since the numerator is 3, we'll circle 3 groups and count up those stars:
6 stars are circled, so our answer is 6.
Start with 10 stars and divide them into 5 groups (because the denominator is 5).
Then, circle 2 of these groups (because the numerator is 2).
- Fractions show pieces of a whole and consists of a numerator and a denominator.
- The denominator (the bottom number) tells how many total pieces there are and the numerator (the top number) tells how many of those pieces we are talking about.
