### Unit 3: Lesson 1

Equal parts of shapes

# Equal parts of circles and rectangles

Sal determines if shapes are divided into 2 or 4 equal sections.

## Want to join the conversation?

• Can a triangle be divided in to 3rds?
• You can achieve this to my knowledge atleast three different ways.
• how can I divided into 5 and 7 combined into squares and shapes
• i have no clue
• so can a shape be divided by like 10000000 or is that not a thing?
• In theory, a shape like a square or a rectangle or a circle can be divided into as many pieces as you want. The more divisions there are, the smaller each division is. We like to use a smaller number of divisions, like halves or fourths, because they're easier to work with
• is there a shape with 100 sides?
• Yes, there is.
A shape can have as many sides as you want
• For each sections you make: halves, thirds, or even fourths, every part has to have the same area. Am I correct?
• Can a shape be dived by 30
• n theory, a shape like a square or a rectangle or a circle can be divided into as many pieces as you want. The more divisions there are, the smaller each division is. We like to use a smaller number of divisions, like halves or fourths, because they're easier to work with
• can you dived a trapezoid
