Mathnasium #MathTricks: Half of Even Numbers

By Mathnasium | Added Oct 6, 2021

The word half should bring to mind the image of two equal parts: “2 parts the same.”

To find half of any amount, cut the whole into “2 parts the same” and take either one.

To find half of 6, we cut the whole of 6 circles into “2 parts the same.” Taking either part, we have:

half of 6 = 3.
