Answer

40 donuts are brought into a class, and there are $h$ students in the class. Each student needs to receive the same number of donuts. How many donuts does each student get?

Work Step by Step

-An example statement would be: 40 donuts are brought into a class, and there are $h$ students in the class. Each student needs to receive the same number of donuts. How many donuts does each student get? -To find out how many donuts each student receives, the number of donuts would need to be divided by the number of students in the class. -For example: If there are 20 students in the class, $20=h$. There are $40$ donuts, and to figure out how many donuts each student would receive, we need to divide $40$ by $20$. We get $40\div20=2$. Therefore, each student receives 2 donuts.
