**Observe the
following pictures:**

A circle is divided into four
equal parts. In this four parts only one part is shaded.

1/4 (or) one fourth

**Definition:**

Division of the whole:

The whole portion was divided into two equal parts.
In this two parts one part is coloured or shaded. The shaded parts fraction = ½
(half)

The whole portion was divided
into three equal parts. In that two parts are shaded. The shaded parts
fraction = 2/3 (two third).

The whole portion was divided
into four equal parts. In that two parts are shaded.
The shaded parts fraction = 2/4 (two fourth)

The whole portion was divided
into eight equal parts. In that three parts
are shaded. The shaded portion’s fraction = 3/8 (Three eighth) 1/2, 2/3, 2/4, 3/8 Such numbers are examples for fraction.
