**Halves & Extra Facts**

**Cutting Numbers in Half**

Question 1.

Since we’ve been talking about halves, let’s see what happens when we “cut” some numbers in half.

What’s half of 2?

What’s half of 6?

What’s half of 10?

What’s half of 20?

What’s half of 60?

What’s half of 100?

What’s half of 200?

What’s half of 600?

What’s half of 1,000?

Answer:

Half of 2 is

1/2 × 2 = 1

So, half of 2 is 1.

Half of 6 is

1/2 × 6 = 3

So, half of 6 is 3.

Half of 10

1/2 × 10 = 5

So, half of 10 is 5.

Half of 20

1/2 × 20 = 10

So, half of 20 is 10.

Half of 60

1/2 × 60 = 30

So, half of 60 is 30.

Half of 100

1/2 × 100 = 50

So, half of 100 is 50.

Half of 200

1/2 × 200 = 100

So, half of 200 is 100.

Half of 600

1/2 × 600 = 300

So, half of 600 is 300.

Half of 1,000

1/2 × 1000 = 500

So, half of 1000 is 500.

Question 2.

What makes it pretty easy to divide these numbers in half?

Answer:

1/2 × 1 = 1/2

Question 3.

Solve these half facts.

Answer:

By subtracting 5 from 10 we get 5.

By subtracting 50 from 100 we get 50.

By subtracting 4 from 8 we get 4.

By subtracting 40 from 80 we get 40.

By subtracting 6 from 12 we get 6.

By subtracting 60 from 120 we get 60.

By subtracting 20 from 40 we get 20.

By subtracting 7 from 14 we get 7.

By subtracting 9 from 18 we get 9.

By subtracting 8 from 16 we get 8.

By subtracting 10 from 20 we get 10.

By subtracting 3 from 6 we get 3.

By subtracting 30 from 60 we get 30.

By subtracting 100 from 200 we get 100.

Question 4.

Now try these subtraction combinations.

Answer:

By subtracting 6 from 12 we get 6.

By subtracting 6 from 13 we get 7.

By subtracting 7 from 12 we get 5.

By subtracting 8 from 16 we get 8.

By subtracting 8 from 15 we get 7.

By subtracting 9 from 16 we get 7.

By subtracting 7 from 16 we get 9.

**Sometimes story problems give you more facts than you need to solve the problem. In each problem below, cross out the fact you don’t need. Then solve the problem. Show your work.**

Question 5.

Jenny has 12 toy people. She is building a house for them. She used 12 blocks for the front gate and 48 blocks for the rest of the house. How many blocks did Jenny use in all?

It has 4 lines of symmetry.

c.

This is a ______________

It has ____________ line(s) of symmetry.

Answer:

This is a hexagon.

It has 6 lines of symmetry.

Question 3.

Draw the other half of each of these figures as carefully as you can so they’re symmetrical when you’re finished. (Hint: If you want to see what the whole figure looks like before you draw the other half, set a mirror upright down the midline and take a peek.)

Answer:

Question 4.

Now, here comes the fun part. Have someone in your family draw half a picture of something symmetrical, like a pair of glasses, or a teddy bear, or a butterfly, or…. Then take your pencil and crayons and draw in the other half. When you’re finished, you draw a half picture and let a family member draw in the other half.
