I don't know how to go about solving this problem: There were 93 students going to camp. After equal groups of fewer than 10 students were formed for hiking. 2 students were left over . How many equal groups were formed?
Thanks!

You'll need to try it out with different numbers.
93 Ã· 9 =
93 Ã· 8 =
93 Ã· 7 =
Etc.

9 groups does not leave a remainder of 2.
Also 9 groups would have to have 10 persons in each group, but the instructions indicate "fewer than ten."
As Writeacher indicates, you need to try it out with different numbers to find which one gives a remainder of 2.
93/9 = 10 groups but remainder of 3
93/8 = ?
93/7 = ?
And so on.
I hope this helps a little more.
