## Answers ( )

Kendra is watching over 5 children. She wants to be sure that they each have an even number of apple slices. There are 35 apple slices total. She wants to take 35 and put it equally into 5 groups.

Your equation would be 5s=35, where s would be the total amount of apple slices on each plate.

To solve this equation you would divide both sides by 5 to get 7. s=7 (35/5=7)

Each quintuplet would be 7 apple slices.
