### Viliami Fractions of a region T3W2

WALA: We are learning about Fractions of a Region

In Room 7 we have been learning about fractions of a region. We has to work out the problem below. I used blocks to help me with the understanding of the problem. I have taken a photo of how I worked out the problem below.

Term 3 Week 2

 Two groups of friends are sharing chocolate bars. Each group wants to share the chocolate bars fairly so every person gets the same amount and no chocolate remains.           In the first group of friends, four students receive three chocolate bars. How much chocolate did each person get in the first group? In the second group of friends, eight students are given six chocolate bars. How much chocolate did each person get? Which group of students got more chocolate? The first group got ¾.    The other group got 6/8. Each group gets the same amount of chocolate.
