# Using Strip Diagrams to Represent Fractions A strip diagram can be divided into several units to represent fractions.

Each fraction has a numerator that is on top and a denominator that is on the bottom.

A strip diagram is a rectangular model that can be used to show fractions.

A strip diagram is also known as a fraction strip, length model, or bar model.

### Using Strip Diagrams to Represent Fractions – Examples 1:

Shade 3 parts of the fraction bar and write what fraction it represents.

Solutions:

Step 1: Count the parts of the strip model to know it is divided into 6 identical parts. Each part is $$\frac{1}{6}$$ of the whole fraction bar.
Step 2: 3 parts of the fraction are $$\frac{3}{6}$$. So, shade 3 parts of the whole.

### Using Strip Diagrams to Represent Fractions – Examples 2:

Shade 2 parts of the fraction bar and write what fraction it represents.

Solutions:

Step 1: Count the parts of the strip model to know it is divided into 5 identical parts. Each part is $$\frac{1}{5}$$ of the whole fraction bar.
Step 2: 2 parts of the fraction are $$\frac{2}{6}$$. So, shade 3 parts of the whole.
