What fraction is shaded?

We need to remember what fraction means. A fraction is a part out of the whole. And we’re interested in the shaded part. So we’re looking for the shaded pieces out of the total pieces. When we count the shaded pieces — one, two, three, four, five — we can say that there are five pieces shaded.

Now we need to know how many total pieces. That means the shaded and the unshaded pieces. There’s one unshaded piece. If we add the shaded and unshaded pieces together, there are six total pieces. Five pieces are shaded out of six total pieces. We say that the fraction of shaded pieces is five-sixths.
