Can you cut a cake into eight equal pastries? Or a pizza into two unequal parts? Well, we cannot eat them as a ‘whole’. There are numerous day-t0-day applications which require dividing things into parts. Let’s start more about the parts and wholes in this section.

**FAQs on Parts and Wholes**

**Question 1: What is each part of a shape called that has three equal parts?**

**Answer:** When the division of shape takes place into three equal parts, then each part is called a third. In the case of two equal parts, each part is a half.

** Question 2: What is meant by equal parts?**

**Answer:** Equal parts of a shape are those parts that are absolutely equal in terms of measurement. If a solid is divided into two equal parts, then one half of the solid will be exactly equal to the other half.

**Question 3: How many parts exist in a percent?**

**Answer:** Percentage is a term derived from Latin which means ‘out of one hundred’. Therefore, a percent certainly has 100 parts. So, one can consider each ‘whole’ as broken up into 100 parts that are equal. Each such part happens to be a single percent.

**Question 4: What number of equal parts dos a circle has?**

**Answer. **The number of equal parts that a circle has is 360. When the subdivision of a circle takes place into 360 equal parts, the size of the angle of each wedge that exists at the center of the circle shall be 1 degree.
