#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will learn how to share sums of money between a certain number of people.

To share out an amount of money, we will need to divide.

If I have £35 and I need to share it between 7 people, I have to divide by 7.

35 ÷ 7 = 5

So, each person would get £5.

We can check our answer by using multiplication to do the inverse calculation.

7 people with £5 should make £35.

7 × 5 = 35

Now let's try an example question.

Example

Share £28 amongst 4 people.

How much does each person get?

To share £28 between 4 people, we must divide by 4.

28 ÷ 4 = 7

So, each of the 4 people gets £7

Now you are ready to try some questions like this yourself.
