2 equal parts are called halves.
Having the same part, division, slice or segment of a whole.
Fractions are formed when we have a WHOLE divided into so many SAME parts. into two equal parts.
A fraction is an equal part of a whole object or an equal part of a set of objects.
Numerator: The number above the fraction bar in a fraction; it tells how many equal parts. Denominator: The number under the dash in a fraction; it indicates the total number of equal parts. Fraction Bar: The symbol used to separate the numerator and denominator.
Two parts of a whole are said to be unequal if they differ in size and value. In the image above we see that the circle is divided into 3 parts. However, none of the parts are the same as the other in shape and size. Therefore we call them unequal parts.
3 equal parts are called thirds.
When a whole is divided into 4 equal parts and each part is called a quarter. A quarter is one of four equal parts.
When a shape is divided into two equal parts, the parts can be described as halves.
By dividing the whole or a group of objects into equal parts we get equal parts. We need to divide an object or an integer into equal parts to distribute it evenly. These same parts must be equal in measurements such as weight, volume, dimensions, numbers, etc.
Each part is called a third, one divided into three equal parts. If we take a shape and divide it into four equal parts, we call each part a quarter.
Breaking a whole thing into two equal parts equals half.
