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

10 / 4 = 2 1/2 cookies each

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

thanks a lot

You're welcome.
