2-12.

Lyle and his study team are designing spinners.

1. If one half of the sections on a spinner are green and there are $14$ sections, how many are green?

This problem can be thought of as one half times fourteen, or fourteen divided by two.

$7$

2. If three fourths of the sections on a different spinner have stripes and there are $24$ sections, how many sections have stripes?

Divide $24$ by $4$, then multiply it by $3$.

$18$
