Lesson Worksheet: The Division Symbol: Grouping Equally Mathematics • 3rd Grade

In this worksheet, we will practice using the division symbol to write equations to find the number of equal groups when we put 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 objects into a group.


There are 12 fish.

Fill in the blank: There are fish in each bowl.

Fill in the blank: There are bowls.

Fill in the blank: 12÷3=.


There are 18 children.

After making groups of 6, there are groups.

Which division equation shows what we did?

  • A18÷6=3
  • B18÷9=2
  • C18÷2=9
  • D18÷3=6

After making groups of 2, use the division symbol (÷) to write an equation that shows how many groups there will be.

  • A18÷6=3
  • B18÷9=2
  • C18÷3=6
  • D18÷2=9


Emma had 30 flowers to put into vases.

She found the number of vases she needed by solving 30÷10.

How many flowers did she put in each vase?

How many vases did she need?


Choose a story whose answer is 45÷9.

  • A5 hens have laid 45 eggs. How many boxes of 9 eggs can be filled?
  • B9 hens have laid 45 eggs. How many boxes of 5 eggs can be filled?


Amelia wants to put these 12 blocks into groups so that there are 3 blocks in each group.

Which of these is equal to the number of groups she will have?

  • A12×3
  • B12+3
  • C12÷3
  • D123

How many groups will there be?


Amelia has made 12 sandwiches that are going to be put on plates. She wants to put 4 sandwiches on each plate.

Pick the calculation that is equal to the number of plates.

  • A12÷3
  • B12+4
  • C12÷4

Mrs. Thomas divided 16 gifts into groups. Each group had 2 gifts.

Complete: There are groups.

What is the calculation we did to find the number of groups?

  • A162
  • B16÷2
  • C16+2
  • D8÷2


Both of these problems are solved by finding 21÷7.
