Division by Distribution

There are 12 pieces of apples and which are distributed among 4 boys. If each boy gets one piece, then 12 - 4 = 8 pieces of apples will left over and again one piece of apple is distributed among the boys, now each boy gets 2 pieces of apples and 8 – 4 = 4 pieces of apples are left. Now the number of remaining pieces of apples is 4. These apples are again distributed among 4 boys and each gets one apple.

From the above distribution of apples we can say that everyone gets 3 apples.

Hence, .
