Step: 1

A square represents 1 whole (1 liter of coke).

Step: 2

Divide the square vertically into 2 equal parts. Each part represents 1 2 liter of Coke.

Step: 3

Again divide the square into 2 horizontal sections.

[Since the coke is to be shared by 2 persons.]

Step: 4

We get a total of 4 parts. One part out of a total of 4 parts i.e., 1 4 liters is what each person got. Thus 1 2 liter is divided into 2 equal parts of 1 4 liter each.

Correct Answer is : Figure 3

Step: 1

A square represents 1 whole( 1 lb of candy).

Step: 2

Divide the square vertically into 4 equal parts. Each part represents 1 4 lb of candy.

Step: 3

Again divide the square into 3 horizontal sections.

[Since the candy is to be shared by 3 persons.]

Step: 4

We get a total of 12 parts. One part out of a total of 12 parts i.e., 1 12 lb is what each person will get. Thus 1 4 lb is divided into 3 equal parts of 1 12 lb each.

Correct Answer is : Figure 4
