Learn How to Calculate Halves, Thirds and Fourths
Welcome to the Smartick blog! In this week’s post, we are going to learn how to calculate halves, thirds, and fourths. These expressions are not only used in math problems, but also in daily life.
Do you know what they are? Do you know how to calculate them? In this post, you will realize how easy it is to calculate halves, thirds, and fourths.
One half is equivalent to the fraction: 1/2. Therefore, it is half of any amount. Halves are calculated by dividing by 2.
One half of 10 = ½ of 10 = 10/2 = 5.
One half of 34 = ½ of 34 = 34/2 = 17.
Three halves of 14 = 3/2 of 14 = 3 x 14/2 = 3 x 7 = 21.
One third is equivalent to the fraction: 1/3. Therefore, it is a third of an amount. Thirds are calculated by dividing by 3.
One third of 24 =1/3 of 24 = 24/3 = 8.
One third of 33 =1/3 of 33 = 33/3 = 11.
Five thirds of 15 = 5/3 of 15 = 5 x 15/3 = 5 x 5 = 25.
One fourth is equivalent to the fraction: 1/4. Therefore, it is a quarter of an amount. Fourths are calculated by dividing by 4.
One fourth of 20 = ¼ of 20 = 20/4 = 5.
One fourth of 28 = ¼ of 28 = 28/4 = 7.
Seven fourths of 8 = 7/4 of 8 = 7 x 8/4 = 7 x 2 = 14.
