Kendra bought 4 boxes of doughnuts. There were 6 doughnuts in each box. She divided the doughnuts equally among 8 people. How many doughnuts did each person receive?

1 Answer

  • Well this is pretty easy.
    If there are 8 people, with 6 doughnuts in every box, then do 6*4 to give you 24.
    If you know you multiplication (recommend practicing), then you would know that 8 is a multiple of 24.  So the second step to this word problem is 24/8 to give you the final answer of:
    3 doughnuts / person
