# How can an array help me with division?

## What is an array?

As array is a group of things arranged into rows and columns.

You can use arrays to help you divide one number by another.

Arrange the number of things you want to divide into the number of rows you want to divide by.

Count the number of things in each row to find the answer.

### Example

10 ÷ 5 = ?

Make a group of 10 objects

Arrange them into 5 rows

How many are in each row? Did you get 2?

So 10 ÷ 5 = 2
