If we have a quantity ,does it work in the the same way. he ate half of the apples.

How would you translate he ate half of the apples. would you need to insert a word such as he ate half the quantity of the apples?

Bonjour Sue ! Here, because it's a whole composed of only two halves, you will use "la moitié de" as such: "Il a mangé la moitié des pommes." That means there was a specific quantity of apples, and he ate half of this quantity. I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
