28 Donuts and 7 People? This is sooooooo complicated!!! (Sweat, sweat!) There are 28 donuts and 7 people. All you need to do to find out how many donuts each person gets is divide 28 by 7 which equals to 4! This is because when you multiply 7 by 4 it equals to 28. Other ways you could do this problem are: write down 7 four times and add them up, or make 28 tallies and make the tallies go into 7 groups. The easiest way to do this problem visually and kinesthetically is to put 7 donuts side by side, and just put one donut under each one until you run out of donuts!
