How many groups of three apples are
In this question, we’re shown an
amount of apples and we need to split it up or divide it into equal groups. And we know that it needs to be
split up into equal groups because we need to find out how many groups of three
apples are there. All of the groups we make need to
have three apples in them.
Now, if we look at the way that the
apples have been arranged, we can’t see any rows of three, can we? There aren’t really any groups of
three that jump out at us, which makes it quick to answer the question. So how are we going to count our
groups of three then? What if we circle them?
We can see one, two, three,
four. Can you see what we’re doing
here? We’re circling three apples every
time. We’re making equal groups. Five, six, seven, eight. We’ve divided this amount of apples
into equal groups with three apples in each group. There are eight groups
