## Explanation:

This problem can be solved with logic like EZ as Pi did. You can also solve the problem with math, as Trevor and Alan did.

You can also think of it as money, instead of cups.

People have a lot of problem-solving and intuitive skills when it comes to money.

Let’s change the subject to money. Your brother and you want to divide $1.50 in half.

1) Split the quarter-sized dollar bill in half, so each brother receives 2 quarters.

2) Divide the 50c into one quarter.

Each brother now has three quarters.

3 quarters equals 3/4

The answer is either money or cups.

1/2 + 1/4 = 2/4 +1/4 = 3/4

## Explanation:

This can be done with some thinking, without the need to use fraction operations that students find difficult.

You can easily show this by using different-sized measuring cups for baking.

A practical introduction to fractions is a great one.
