3. Equal part of a triangle

(a) The white triangle is divided into three equal parts. Fill each one-third part with a    different colour.

Can you show that these parts are equal? Think how?

Ans. (a) Since, one triangle is divided into three equal parts, therefore, each part is one-third 1/3 of the whole triangle. Let us 1/3 in each part and colour them in different colours as shown in the above figure.

In order to show that these parts are equal. Let us name them, as T1, T2 and T3. Trace any of them, say T1. Now place traced part over T2 and T3.We find that T1 covers T1, Tand Tare of the same shape and size. Hence, these triangles are equal.

(b) Now try to make three parts of the triangle in a different way. Colour each one-third with a different colour.

Ans. (b) The given triangle is divided into three equal parts of showing the adjoining figure. Each one-third part is coloured differently.

4. How will you check that each part is really one-sixth of that rectangle?

Ans. Trace a rectangle equal to any one of the six parts of one of the figures. Put the trace out rectangle on the remaining parts one by one. It overlaps completely. This showed that each all part is one sixth of the given rectangle. In the same, we can find out in case of the other figure.

5. The green rectangle is bigger than the blue one.

Can we say that 1/6 of the green rectangle is bigger than 1/6 of the blue rectangle.

Ans. Yes, we can say that 1/6  of the green rectangle is bigger than 1/6  of the blue rectangle.
