## Is sharing the same as division?

Sharing is probably the most common way of thinking about **division**. In equal sharing problems, you start with the number of groups and the total number of objects you want to share between them. Your goal is to find out how many objects each (equal) group can receive.

## What is division as equal sharing?

On **dividing the whole or a group of objects is into equal parts**, we get equal shares. We need to divide an object or a whole number into equal parts to distribute it equally.

## What is sharing and grouping in division?

**Sharing happens where we know the number being divided and the number of groups** but we don’t know the size of each group. Grouping happens where we know the number being divided and the size of each group but we don’t know how many groups.

## How do you explain division?

The division is a **method of distributing a group of things into equal parts**. It is one of the four basic operations of arithmetic, which gives a fair result of sharing. The division is an operation inverse of multiplication.

## What is called division?

What is being divided is called **the dividend**, which is divided by the divisor, and the result is called the quotient. In the example, 20 is the dividend, 5 is the divisor, and 4 is the quotient.

We can think of **division as sharing**. The number before the division sign is the total amount being shared. The number after the division sign is the number of groups that the total is being shared between. The answer to the division is the amount that is shared into each group.
