40 dancers are training for a competition. To enter, they must be in teams of seven. How many teams can enter the competition?

The image shows 40 divided by seven. We can see that there are five sevens in 40. And seven fives make 35, and there are five left over.

35 plus five makes 40. So we can say that 40 divided by seven equals five remainder five. To enter the competition, they must be in teams of seven.

Five is not enough. This means that only five teams can enter the competition. The answer is five.
