# How do you divide a rectangle into 4 equal parts?

## How do you divide a rectangle into 4 equal parts?

If you want to divide the rectangle into four rectangles of equal shape and size (four congruent parts), the general answer would be to start by dividing the original rectangle in half with a “cut” parallel to one side through the middle of the adjacent sides, and then repeat the process with the two half rectangles.

**How do you divide a square into 4 squares?**

Solution 1: The easiest way to divide the square into 4 equal parts is to draw three vertical lines or three horizontal lines forming four (4) equal areas.

### How do you divide a rectangle into 5 equal parts?

Draw the diagonal of a square. Build “on top” of the square a rectangle. The length of the side of the new rectangle is the length of the diagonal of the square. The resulting bigger rectangle (not the one “on top” of the square) should now be divided into 5 equal parts.

**How do you divide a square into eight equal parts?**

Draw a horizontal line through the middle of the square. Because all the sides of a square are equal, you know how to divide all sides equally. Once you have four rectangles, you can simply draw one horizontal line through the center of the square, dividing it into eight equal rectangles.

#### How do you divide a rectangle into four equal parts?

If you want to divide the rectangle into four rectangles of equal shape and size (four congruent parts), the general answer would be to start by dividing the original rectangle in half with a “cut” parallel to one side through the middle of the adjacent sides, and then repeat the process with the two half rectangles.

**How to divide a rectangle into a grid of squares?**

Alternatively, compute s first, and look at a = W / s and b = H / s, which might not be integers. Round up a to an integer A, and round up b to an integer B. Then use nearly-square rectangles of height H / B and width W / A. It’s easy…after you practice for 40 years. 🙂 – John Hughes Apr 12 ’17 at 17:44

## How are four equal parts of a circle divided?

Well to be divided into fourths, that means we have to be divided into four equal sections. Cause a fourth is gonna be one of the four equal sections. So all of these are divided into four sections but not all of them are divided into four equal sections.
