To find half of even numbers, sometimes it is useful to break apart the whole number into its parts. We can do this to find half of 26.

Since 26 is composed of 2 tens and 6 ones, we can find half of 26 by finding half of 20 and half of 6. Half of 20 is **10**, and half of 6 is **3**, so half of 26 is **10 + 3** = 13.

half of 26** **= **13**.
