One-quarter of 12 equals what?
Here’s a group of 12 blocks. We have to find a quarter of 12. To find a quarter, we have to divide the 12 blocks into four equal groups. Finding a quarter is the same as dividing by four. We’ve divided our 12 blocks into four equal groups. Each group is a quarter. How many blocks are there in one-quarter? One, two, three. 12 divided by four is three. One-quarter of 12 equals three.
We divided our 12 bricks into four equal groups. Each group or each quarter contains three blocks. So one-quarter of 12 is three.
