Matthew cuts s slices of bread. He splits them evenly among 6 plates. Write an expression that shows how many slices are on each plate.

    6/s

    I think that would be

    s slices / 6 plates = s/6 slices/plate

    6/s gets ever smaller as the number of slices increases...

    Thanks, Steve.
