How to divide in real life

The importance of division

The importance of division is that you don't have to keep subtracting the same number over and over. One example is 36 - 6 - 6 - 6 - 6 - 6 - 6 and then count how many 6s there are. People, it's easier to divide!

Example: You have ten pieces of candy. You want to give some to four friends and have some for yourself. How many pieces does one friend get?

10/5=2

One friend gets 2 pieces of candy.
