# Write the fraction representing the shaded portion.

**Solution:**

We will use the concept of fractions to write the fractions representing the shaded portions.

i). There are 2 shaded parts.

The total number of parts is 4.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 2 / 4 or 1 / 2.

ii). There are 8 shaded parts.

The total number of parts is 9.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 8 / 9.

iii). There are 4 shaded parts.

The total number of parts is 8.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 4 / 8 or 1 / 2.

iv). There is 1 shaded part.

The total number of parts is 4.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 1 / 4.

v). There are 3 shaded parts.

The total number of parts is 7.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 3 / 7.

vi). There are 3 shaded parts.

The total number of parts is 12.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 3 / 12 or 1 / 4.

vii). There are 10 shaded parts.

The total number of parts is 10.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 10 / 10 or 1 whole.

viii). There are 4 shaded parts.

The total number of parts is 9.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 4 / 9.

ix). There are 4 shaded parts.

The total number of parts is 8.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 4 / 8 or 1 / 2.

x). There is 1 shaded part.

The total number of parts is 2.

Thus, the required fraction representing the shaded part is 1 / 2.
