‘How many sixths make two and a half?’
Children need to know that there are six sixths in one whole one and also need to understand equivalent fractions and that a half is equivalent to three sixths.
Many children fail to grasp this in primary school, probably because they have never really got to grips with equivalent fractions and it might be necessary to go back and practice this first before attempting these questions.
