In this lesson, you will learn five characters that are used in words describing parts or a whole of something.

.

= = Division, Part
(Korean name: 떼
)

= = Division, Part, Minute
(Korean name:
나눌 )

You will find that these two characters have very similar meanings. In fact, they both have the same Korean name. You can find both of these characters in a variety of words (and sometimes used together) related to parts/divisions of something.

The main difference between the two is that 分 is also the word for “minute” as in, divisions of an hour.
