IDENTIFY FRACTIONS INSTRUCTIONS

Fractional Part of a Group uses square and round cookies to demonstrate a fractional part of a group of objects.

The following illustration was made by Fractional Part of a Group Designer:

7/9 Picture

The denominator 9 in the fraction 7/9 ths shows the total number of cookies in the picture. The numerator 7 in the fraction 7/9 ths tells the number of square cookies in the picture.

Since the question is "What fraction of the cookies are square?" , we will use the fraction 7/9 ths because 7 of the 9 cookies are square cookies.

The line between the numerator and denominator is known as the fraction bar. It is also called the division bar.

You may drag any of the cookies to get a clearer picture. Left click on the cookie and move to any position you wish.
