# Which of the drawing (a) to (d) show:

i) 2 × 1/5

ii) 2 × 1/2

iii) 3 × 2/3

iv) 3 × 1/4

**Solution:**

Matching can be easily done by comparing the fractions with the shaded areas given.

i) 2 × 1/5 matches with (d) since two circles are divided into five parts and one part of both the circles is shaded.

2 × 1/5 = 1/5 + 1/5 = 2/5

ii) 2 × 1/2 matches with (b) as one-half of both the drawings is shaded.

2 × 1/2 = 1/2 + 1/2 = 2/2 = 1

iii) 3 × 2/3 matches with (a) since two third of the three circles is shaded.

3 × 2/3 = 2/3 + 2/3 + 2/3 = 6/3 = 2

iv) 3 × 1/4 matches with (c) since one fourth of three squares is shaded.

3 × 1/4 = 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 = 3/4
