Blueberries for friends

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    Kali is having a picnic for her six friends.
  • 0:04 - 0:07
    The oldest friend, Vikram, is 10 years old.
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    The youngest, Diya, is six years old.
  • 0:10 - 0:12
    She has a total of 48 blueberries
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    and wants to split them evenly
  • 0:14 - 0:15
    between her friends.
  • 0:15 - 0:19
    How many blueberries does each friend get?
  • 0:19 - 0:20
    And I encourage you to now,
  • 0:20 - 0:21
    pause this video
  • 0:21 - 0:23
    and try to figure it out on your own.
  • 0:23 - 0:27
    How many blueberries does each friend get?
  • 0:27 - 0:28
    Let's think about this a little bit.
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    So she has six friends.
  • 0:31 - 0:32
    She has six friends
  • 0:32 - 0:33
    and she wants them all
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    to be able to get the same amount.
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    So, she wants to split the 48 blueberries evenly
  • 0:39 - 0:40
    amongst her six friends.
  • 0:40 - 0:42
    The ages of her friends don't matter.
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    So, she's going to take the 48 blueberries.
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    She's going to take the 48 blueberries
  • 0:47 - 0:49
    and divide it,
  • 0:49 - 0:50
    and divide it
  • 0:50 - 0:51
    by six.
  • 0:51 - 0:54
    She wants to divide it into six groups.
  • 0:54 - 0:58
    So she wants to divide it into six groups.
  • 0:58 - 1:00
    48 divided by 6.
  • 1:00 - 1:02
    And so this,
  • 1:02 - 1:03
    so question mark,
  • 1:03 - 1:06
    is going to be equal to the number of blueberries
  • 1:06 - 1:09
    that each friend gets.
  • 1:09 - 1:12
    So 48 divided by six is equal to question mark,
  • 1:12 - 1:14
    is the same thing as saying
  • 1:14 - 1:16
    that 48,
  • 1:16 - 1:19
    48 is equal to,
  • 1:19 - 1:23
    is equal to question mark times six,
  • 1:23 - 1:25
    times six.
  • 1:25 - 1:26
    So if we could figure out
  • 1:26 - 1:28
    what number we can multiply by six
  • 1:28 - 1:30
    to get 48,
  • 1:30 - 1:33
    then we know what 48 divided by six
  • 1:33 - 1:34
    actually is.
  • 1:34 - 1:35
    For example, this question mark,
  • 1:35 - 1:37
    this is the number of blueberries per friend.
  • 1:37 - 1:42
    The number of blueberries per friend times six friends,
  • 1:42 - 1:44
    well that should tell us the total number of blueberries,
  • 1:44 - 1:46
    which is 48.
  • 1:46 - 1:48
    So what is this number?
  • 1:48 - 1:49
    Well, let's think about,
  • 1:49 - 1:50
    let's just think about
  • 1:50 - 1:52
    all of the multiples of six.
  • 1:52 - 1:56
    So, six times one is equal to six.
  • 1:56 - 1:59
    Six times two is equal to 12.
  • 1:59 - 2:02
    And really we're just increasing by six each time.
  • 2:02 - 2:05
    We're just increasing by six.
  • 2:05 - 2:08
    Six times three is equal to 18.
  • 2:08 - 2:11
    Six times four is equal to 24.
  • 2:11 - 2:15
    Six times five is equal to 30.
  • 2:15 - 2:19
    Six times six is equal to 36.
  • 2:19 - 2:21
    Six times seven is equal to 42.
  • 2:21 - 2:24
    Notice we're just adding six every time.
  • 2:24 - 2:28
    Six times eight is equal to 48.
  • 2:28 - 2:30
    Is equal to 48.
  • 2:30 - 2:32
    So we now know that question mark,
  • 2:32 - 2:36
    we now know that the question mark must be eight.
  • 2:36 - 2:37
    Six times eight
  • 2:37 - 2:39
    and eight times six is the same thing.
  • 2:39 - 2:40
    So this is going to be equal
  • 2:40 - 2:43
    to six times question mark.
  • 2:43 - 2:46
    Six times question mark
  • 2:46 - 2:48
    and now we learned
  • 2:48 - 2:50
    that question mark is equal to 48.
  • 2:50 - 2:53
    Sorry, question mark is equal to eight.
  • 2:53 - 2:54
    So, each of her friends
  • 2:54 - 2:56
    are going to get eight blueberries.
  • 2:56 - 2:58
    So this is, right over here,
  • 2:58 - 3:03
    48 divided by six is equal to eight blueberries.
  • 3:04 - 3:06
    Now, let's verify that.
  • 3:06 - 3:08
    We have 48 blueberries right over here.
  • 3:08 - 3:10
    Lets divide them into six groups
  • 3:10 - 3:14
    where each group is going to have eight blueberries.
  • 3:14 - 3:15
    So let me do my best.
  • 3:15 - 3:17
    So let's see, this is one, two,
  • 3:17 - 3:22
    three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
  • 3:23 - 3:25
    So, that's a group of eight blueberries.
  • 3:25 - 3:29
    See, here's another group of eight blueberries,
  • 3:29 - 3:31
    right over here.
  • 3:31 - 3:34
    And there's another group, right over here,
  • 3:34 - 3:36
    of eight blueberries.
  • 3:36 - 3:38
    And then, here's our fourth group
  • 3:38 - 3:40
    of eight blueberries.
  • 3:40 - 3:41
    And now, let's see,
  • 3:41 - 3:43
    we can make a fifth group
  • 3:43 - 3:46
    of eight blueberries.
  • 3:46 - 3:47
    Fifth group of eight blueberries.
  • 3:47 - 3:48
    And then, finally,
  • 3:48 - 3:51
    here is our sixth group.
  • 3:51 - 3:52
    Here is our sixth group
  • 3:52 - 3:54
    of eight blueberries.
  • 3:54 - 3:55
    So notice,
  • 3:55 - 3:57
    we have six groups of eight blueberries.
  • 3:57 - 3:58
    Each of her six friends
  • 3:58 - 4:00
    could take one of these groups
  • 4:00 - 4:02
    of eight blueberries.
