So, let's explroe what it division means. Let's start with a specific problem. Let's look at $ \boxed{ 6 \div 3 } $ If you read theat first problem out loud, you would say"What is 6 divided by 3 ?

The symbol for divide is $$ \div $$.

#### Ok, but what does this all mean ?

$$ 6 \div 3 $$ means : How many groups of 3 are in 6 . As you can see, there are 2 groups of 3 in 6 .

### So, what does 'evenly divide' mean?

##### Answer

If one number **evenly divides** another number, then that first divides the second without any remainder.

#### Example

- 3 evenly divides 21 because $$ 12 \div 3 = 7$$, which is an integer.
- Think of this definition this way: when one number divides another into an exact integer with nothing left over, no remainder, then you know that the one number evenly divides the other.

#### Non Example

- 3 does
**not**evenly divide 22 because $$\div 22= 7 $$ plus a remainder of 1
