If you really need to, read the question twice.<br /><br />e.g. If I had 244 apples, and I DIVIDE it among 6 buckets. How many apples will be in each bucket? <br />Divide means sharing equally, so you have to give an equal number of apples to each bucket. <br />Jake Lhttp://jakelsl.global2.vic.edu.au/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7726590324459993231.post-87376143193069460242016-06-21T09:49:05.168+10:002016-06-21T09:49:05.168+10:00Hello Middle Matters,
