Amy makes 20 cakes. She shares the cakes between five plates. Tick one calculation that shows how many cakes are on each plate. 20 plus five equals 25, 20 take away five equals 15, 20 divided by five equals four, or 20 times five equals 100.

We know that Amy bakes 20 cakes. You may have noticed that each of our calculations begins with the number 20. This is the number of cakes that Amy has. Then Amy shares the cakes between five plates. So we have 20 cakes. And we have to share them between five plates. If we divide the cakes into equal groups, each group has four cakes. 20 cakes shared between five plates leaves four cakes on each plate.

Sharing is the same as dividing. Amy had 20 cakes. She shared them equally between five plates. There are four cakes on each plate. So this is the calculation that shows how many cakes are on each plate. 20 divided by five equals four. And the question tells us that we need to tick one calculation. So the box we need to tick is this one. 20 cakes shared between five plates equals four cakes on each plate. 20 divided by five equals four.
