    The math concept here is what we call 𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬. So if you had a denominator of 5 that means it's broken down into 5 total pieces. But what if it were broken into 25 pieces. If you had 3 of the 5 pieces originally, how many of the 25 pieces would you need to equal those 3 out of 5 you originally had? So 3/5 = how many out of 25? That's the basic concept here!

    So what you would do is look at each of those pictures and count how many pieces they are each broken into. That number would be your denominator! To get your numerator, you'd divide this by how many it was originally broken into. In my example, it's 2. But with yours, it would be 4.

    Here is a illustration I put together to show you how students are often taught the concept. So the box on top is where we started. Then we subdivided this box into a different number of pieces. The bracket in between helps show you how many pieces in the newly subdivided one equate to, meaning equal, the original.

    so you are supposed to represent 1/4 in all  models 

    so count the number of square/slices/or whatever in the picture 

    then divide that number by 4 

    then,  color in   number of square/slices/or whatever / 4  

    so 1st one has 8 squares  

    divide by 4  8/4 = 2     

    so color in 2 squares 

    2/8 = 1/4  

    so I don't know if they want 2/8 or 1/4 in the fraction.   

    the 2nd one has  12 squares

    12/4  = 3   

    so color in 3 squares   

    3/12 = 1/4          

    (again they want  3/12 or 1/4 in fraction) 

    the 3rd one 

    16 slices 

    16/4 =4  

    color in 4 slices   

    4/16 = 1/4 

    (again they want either 4/16 or 1/4 in the fraction)
