## Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 2.3 Answer Key Fractions of a Whole

**Essential Question**

How does a fraction name part of a whole?

**Unlock the Problem**

The first pizzeria in America opened in New York in 1905. The pizza recipe came from Italy. Look at Italy’s flag. What fraction of the flag is not red?

Name equal parts of a whole.

A fraction can name more than 1 equal part of a whole.

The flag is divided into 3 equal parts, and 2 parts are not red.

Read: two thirds or two parts out of three equal parts

Write: \(\frac{2}{3}\)

So, ___ of the flag is not red.

Answer:

So, \(\frac{2}{3}\) of the flag is not red.

**Math Idea**

When all the parts are shaded, one whole shape is equal to all of its parts. It represents the whole number 1.

\(\frac{3}{3}\) = 1

The numerator tells how many parts are being counted.

The denominator tells how many equal parts are in the whole or in the group.

You can count equal parts, such as sixths, to make a whole.
