There are 6 containers each holding 2,750 boxes. You have 11 people to unload all 6 containers. How many boxes will each person have to unload, on average, to empty the containers?

First, multiply to find the total number of boxes.
6 * 2,750 = ??
Then divide that product by 11 to find the number of boxes each person will unload,
