Main Lesson


Begum's Beasts and Limit Breakers


Today we are going to find simple fractions of amounts. Now you have already looked at finding halves of amounts so now we are going to look at finding quarters. 

 To find a 1/4 of amount we need to look at the bottom number. This number is 4. So when finding a 1/4 of amount, just like finding any other fraction of an amount, we need to divide the number by 4. E.g. 20 divided by 4 is 5! 


Have a go at dividing the number below by 4 and finding those quarters. 

1) 1/4 of 8

2) 1/4 of 12

3) 1/4 of 24

4) 1/4 of 16 

5)1/4 of 40 

6) 1/4 of 80 

7) 1/4 of 32 

8) 1/4 of 36 


Send your answers to your teacher.
