28 children want to have a water balloon fight. They decide they will be in teams of four. How many teams will there be?

We know that there are 28 children who want to have a water balloon fight. We also know they’ve decided to be in teams of four. So, to find out how many teams there will be, we need to divide 28 by four. How many fours are there in 28? Let’s count in fours until we reach 28. Four, eight, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28. There are seven fours in 28. 28 divided by four is seven. If 28 children want to have a water balloon fight and they decide to be in teams of four, there will be seven teams. 28 divided by four is seven.
