00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:05.240
Ben ate half a pizza.
00:00:06.400 --> 00:00:09.280
Which fraction shows the amount he ate?
00:00:09.960 --> 00:00:10.920
Circle it.
00:00:12.160 --> 00:00:19.560
A quarter, a third, two-quarters, or three-quarters.
00:00:21.440 --> 00:00:24.240
We know that ben ate half a pizza.
00:00:25.360 --> 00:00:29.520
We can imagine that this is the whole pizza that Ben had to begin with.
00:00:31.040 --> 00:00:33.440
This is the half that Ben ate.
00:00:34.920 --> 00:00:37.680
And this is the half that Ben has left.
00:00:39.240 --> 00:00:45.120
We have to circle the fraction that shows the amount he ate.
00:00:45.120 --> 00:00:47.960
But none of these fractions say a half!
00:00:49.640 --> 00:00:54.560
So we need to find the fraction which is equal to a half.
00:00:55.720 --> 00:00:57.760
Is a quarter equal to a half?
00:00:59.320 --> 00:01:06.520
If Ben were to divide his pizza into four equal parts, each part would be one-quarter.
00:01:09.760 --> 00:01:11.480
Ben ate more than a quarter.
00:01:13.200 --> 00:01:22.120
Ben ate two quarters, which is this fraction right here, two out of four pieces.
00:01:22.320 --> 00:01:25.440
Two-quarters is equal to a half.
00:01:26.640 --> 00:01:31.440
The fraction which shows the amount of pizza that Ben ate is two-quarters.
00:01:31.920 --> 00:01:33.200
And we’ve circled it.
