There are three different ways you can write the division question.

There are two different ways to explain these. Quotative and Partitive.

Quotative:

How many groups of two?

Partitive:

The next scriber is:

EUNICE!

Jocelynskogbergsaid...Good job on your scribe! I like how you showed two ways of grouping integers, but don't be afraid of bracets, they will really help to make your life easier in future math classes.
