Razzi says get these items ready, because today we're going to practice shares in division. It's time to begin! Solve fourteen divided by two using the shares in division method. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Set up two groups for the divisor. Share the dividend, fourteen, between both groups, to get seven in each group. Did you also get seven? Let's tackle the next problem! Solve twentyfour divided by four. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Set up four groups for the divisor. Share the dividend, twentyfour, between all groups, to get six in each group. Did you also get six? Here is the next problem! Solve thirtyfive divided by seven. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Set up seven groups for the divisor. Share the dividend, thirtyfive, between all groups, to get five in each group. Did you also get five? Let's tackle the final problem! Solve twenty divided by five. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Set up five groups for the divisor. Share the dividend, twenty, between all groups, to get four in each group. Did you also get four? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!

What is 18 divided by 2?
HintsTry drawing two boxes and sharing the counters out equally between the two groups.
Count how many spots are in each group now.
There should be the same number of spots in each group.
SolutionWe start with the dividend, which is 18, and share it between 2 groups. There will be 9 in each group. This is the answer.

What is 32 divided by 4?
HintsWhat is the divisor in 32 ÷ 4? This is how many boxes are needed.
If we shared out 32 equally between 4 boxes, how many would be in each box?
SolutionIf we want to share thirtytwo by four, first we need to set up four boxes.
Then, we share out thirtytwo between the boxes.
In each of the four boxes there will be eight.

Which division equation matches the image?
HintsHow many dots are there to begin with? This is the dividend and goes at the start of the equation.
You can find this number by multiplying the length by the width.
How many boxes are the dots being shared between? This is the divisor and goes after the division symbol.
How many dots end up in each box? This is our answer and goes right at the end of the equation.
You can find this number by multiplying the length by the width.
SolutionThe correct answer is: 36 ÷ 3 = 12
 This is because there are 36 dots to begin with.
 These are shared between 3 boxes.
 You end up with 12 dots in each box.

Solve the division questions.
HintsLook at the divisor. In this question: 35 ÷ 7 = 5, the divisor is 7. This is how many groups you need to make.
Next, share out the dividend, the total amount, between all the groups.
Finally, count how many are in each group. This is your answer.
The number of columns in these images is the divisior. How many items in each column?
Solution 12 ÷ 3 = 4. 12 shared between 3 groups means there will be 4 in each group.
 20 ÷ 5 = 4. 20 shared between 5 groups means there will be 4 in each group.
 24 ÷ 6 = 4. 24 shared between 6 groups means there will be 4 in each group.
 30 ÷ 6 = 5. 30 shared between 6 groups means there will be 5 in each group.

How much will be in each group?
HintsStarting with the dividend, 16, share each of these into the two boxes. You could try drawing this.
How many do you end up with in each box?
Both boxes should end up with the same amount.
Solution16 ÷ 2 = 8
There will be 8 in each box, since we have 16 and share these between 2.

Solve the division problems.
HintsWhat is the divisor in the question? This is how many groups you need to make.
Next, share the total amount, the dividend, between all the groups.
How many are in each group? This is the answer.
Solution 35 ÷ 5 = 7. If we have 35 shared between 5 groups, there will be 7 in each group.
 40 ÷ 5 = 8. If we have 40 shared between 5 groups, there will be 8 in each group.
 28 ÷ 4 = 7. If we have 28 shared between 4 groups, there will be 7 in each group.
 24 ÷ 3 = 8. If we have 24 shared between 3 groups, there will be 8 in each group.
