The large square represents one
whole. Write the fraction that
represents the shaded area.

In this question, we’re shown a
model of a large square, and we’re told this square represents one whole. We have to write the fraction
represented by the shaded part. In other words, what fraction
of the square is shaded? Let’s start by thinking about
the denominator. The large square has been
divided into lots of smaller squares. This is a 100 square. It measures 10 squares by 10
squares. And we know that 10 times 10 is
100. So this is a 100 square. If our whole amount or our
large square has been divided into 100 equal parts, then each part is worth a
hundredth.

We’re just writing the shaded
part. So how many squares out of 100
have been shaded orange? Here’s 10, 20, 30, and seven
more. If 37 out of 100 squares have
been shaded orange, then the shaded area is thirty-seven hundredths. If the large square represents
one whole, the fraction of the square which has been shaded is thirty-seven
hundredths.
