FRACTION

**Fraction –**

**Fraction is
nothing but to understand about part division. If anything is divided into two
or more number of pieces, then each piece is called fraction of whole thing.**

**There are some story has been discussed below to better understand about fraction. **

**Example.1)**

**Suppose Richard
& Dona love to eat pizza, and they ordered a full pizza. They were ready to
divide it in two equal parts. **

**When the
pizza is divided into two equal parts, each part is called a half, and the half
is written as 1/2. Two half makes a whole or complete part.**

**Example.2)**

**Suppose
mother baked a cake, and she made three equal parts of it and gave 1 part each
to my father and me, keeping one for herself. My share is one part out of
three.**

**One
third is written as 1/3. Three one thirds make a whole.**

**Example.3)**

**Michel
and his three friends shared his chocolate
equally. He made 4 equal parts of it, Each got a quarter. **

**Quarter (one-fourth) is written as 1/4. ****Four quarters
makes a whole. **

**Example.4)**

**In above
picture we can observe that, rectangular diagram has been divided into 12 small
rectangular blocks and among them 3 blocks has been colored by green, 5 blocks
has been colored by blue, 4 block has been colored by red.**

** Colored
blocks**

**So,
proportionate/fraction of colored block is = ----------------- **

** ****Total blocks**** **

** (4 + 5 + 3) **

** = ---------------**

** 12**

**It is happen
only through –**

** Red Blocks =
1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 = 4/12**

** Blue Blocks =
1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 =
5/12**

** Green Blocks = 1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 = 3/12**

**So, 4/12 + 5/12 + 3/12 = (4 + 5 + 3)/12 = 12/12 = 1 (Ans.)**
