Fractions of an Amount (1)

 

Today, we will be finding a unit fraction of an amount by dividing an amount into equal groups.

 

 

 

Take a look at this example question:

 

 

After counting the marbles, I can see that Ava has 20.

 

I therefore need to work out 20 ÷ the denominator which is  5 to find one fifth. 

 

To work out the answer to 20 ÷ 5, I need to split the marbles (20) into 5 equal groups:

 

 

I have split the marbles into 5 equal groups. Each group has 4 marbles in it. 

 

Therefore, one fifth of Eva's marbles is 4.

 

 

For more help with this, watch the PowerPoint below.
