For example:

Jo had 9 muesli chunks. She shared among 3 children.

How many chunks will each child get?

9 divided by 3 = 3

There are 3 muesli chunks that 3 children got.

During maths, I learnt to solve "How many sets of?" and "sharing" division problems using multiplication (reversibility).

For example:

Jo had 9 muesli chunks. She shared among 3 children.

How many chunks will each child get?

9 divided by 3 = 3

There are 3 muesli chunks that 3 children got.

During Maths I learnt to solve problems like 28 + ? = 82 using a tidy number line then jumping back by a smaller number.

For example:

28 + ? = 82

28 + 2 = 30

30 + 50 = 80

80 + 3 = 83

83 - 1 = 82
