Finding Halves

In this video, we will learn how to find half of a set of objects or an amount.

To find half of a group of objects, we need to divide the group into two equal parts. To find half of these six candies, we need to split them into two equal groups. Each group contains the same amount of candies. The groups are equal. Each group contains three candies. So, half of six is three.

To find half of these 12 counters, we need to divide them into two equal groups. Each group contains an equal amount of counters. There are six counters in each group. So, half of 12 is six. Let’s try some practice questions.

Complete. There are six toys. Half of six is what.

In this question, we’re being asked to find half of the six toys. The six toys have been divided into two equal groups. Each group is a half. Each group contains three toys. Half of six is three. To find half, the toys were divided into two equal groups. Half of six is three.

There are 10 balloons. What is half of 10?

To find half of the balloons, we need to divide them into two equal groups. Each group is now a half. How many balloons are there in each half? One, two, three, four, five. Half of 10 is five. There are 10 balloons. We divided them into two equal groups to find a half. Half of 10 is five.

Find half of the amount shown. Half of eight is what.

We’re shown a group of eight pencils. The question asks us to find half of eight. To find half of the pencils, we need to divide them into two equal groups. We’ve divided the pencils into two equal groups, and each group is a half. How many pencils are there in each half? One, two, three, four. Half of eight is four. To find half of the pencils, we divided them into two equal groups. Each group is a half. Half of eight is four.

What have we learned in this video? We learned that when we want to find half of an amount, we divide it into two equal groups. Then we count the number in each group.
