Finding Fractions of Numbers
We have asked you over the last two weeks to find fractions of numbers. This is really just a revision of your dividing tables before we go on to do a little bit of work with fractions after Easter.
1/5 of numbers means to divide by 5, so… 1/5 of 25 = 25 divided by 5 = 5 etc.
1/3 of number is dividing by 3, so… 1/3 of 24 = 24 divided by 3 = 8
All you do is divide by the bottom number....easy peasy.
Here is a little game of bingo to help you practice this concept....only choose the fractions with a 1 on the top of them. We have also provided a little video which should help explain what to do as well.
