Four children are sharing 10 brownies so that each one will get the same amount. How much can each child have?

Ms. Sue,
10 / 4 = 2 1/2 cookies each

anonymous,
if you made a diagram to show the answer what would it look like?
(please describe what it would look like)

Ms. Sue,
I'd draw 10 circles. Then I'd assign each kid a different color. Let's say they are red, green, blue and yellow. Color each cookie appropriately. Note that two cookies will have two colors each.
