EQUAL SHARING & EQUAL GROUPING

__EQUAL SHARING & EQUAL GROUPING -__

**Equal sharing is a primary concept of division, first we have to understand equal distribution process, then we can easily understand division method.**

__Equal Sharing –__

**Dividing a number into smaller and equal groups is called
equal sharing. There are 12 grains and 3 chicks. How many grains will each
chick get ?**

**We have to divide the total number of grains, that is 12, by
the number of chicks, which is 3. We can see that each chick gets 4 grains.**

__Equal Grouping –__

**
**

**Collecting or arranging small numbers to make a large number
is called equal grouping. **

**Suppose we have 35 flowers and you want to put 5
flowers in each flower vase. How many flower vases would you need?**

**You put 5 flowers in one flower vase.**

**You put 5 more flowers in one another flower vase.**

**You put 5 more flowers in the third flower vase.**

**You
put 5 more flowers in the fourth flower vase.**

**You put 5 more flowers in the fifth flower vase.**

**You put 5 more flowers in the sixth flower vase.**

**You put 5 more flowers in the seventh flower vase.**

**We have divided the total number of flowers, which is 35,
into equal groups of 5. So, we need 7 flower vases.**
