Sharing Equally

In this video, we will learn how to share objects equally between a number of groups. How could we share these cookies equally between the two monsters? Let’s count how many cookies there are. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. How many cookies should each monster get? There’s one for you and one for you. Here’s two for the orange monster and two for the pink monster.

Now, the monsters have three cookies each. And if we give both monsters one more cookie, they’ll have four cookies each. There were eight cookies to begin with. We shared them equally. Both monsters got four cookies each. Both monsters have an equal amount of cookies. Let’s try some questions to practice sharing equally between a number of groups.

Liam has eight candies. He wants to divide them fairly between himself and his friend. They want to make a model to show how to share the candies. Pick the correct model. If he divides eight candies equally between two people, they each get what candies.

In this question, we’re being asked to divide or share eight candies equally between two people. We have to pick the model which shows eight candies shared equally between two people. Here are two groups to represent the two people, Liam and his friend. Here are eight counters to represent the eight candies. Let’s share them equally.

We could give each friend one candy each, two candies each, three candies each, four candies each. Can you spot the model which has four candies each? It’s this one. If Liam divides his eight candies equally between two people, they each get four candies.

There are 28 balls. After making four equal groups, there will be what balls in each group.

In this question, we’re being asked to share 28 balls into four equal groups. And to find out how many balls there will be in each group. Here are four groups. Let’s share the balls equally. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12.

There are four groups, so we can count in fours. Let’s add four more. 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20. There are five balls in each group. 21, 22, 23, 24. There are six balls in each group. 25, 26, 27, 28. There are seven balls in each group. After making four equal groups, there will be seven balls in each group. We shared 28 balls into four equal groups. Each group has seven balls.

What have we learned in this video? We’ve learned how to share objects equally between a number of groups.
