Math Tricks Finding Half of Even Numbers

Dec 22, 2021

To find half of even numbers, sometimes it is useful to break apart the whole number into its parts. We can do this to find half of 26.

Since 26 is composed of 2 tens and 6 ones, we can find half of 26 by finding half of 20 and half of 6. Half of 20 is 10, and half of 6 is 3, so half of 26 is 10 + 3 = 13.

half of 26 13.
