Here's an easy example:

We start with eighteen boxes. We divide these eighteen boxes by six. This means: how many groups of six can we make with the eighteen boxes that we have? Answer: 3.

Here's another example:

We start with forty-two boxes. We divide these forty-two boxes by six. This means: how many groups of six can we make with the forty-two boxes that we have? Answer: 7.

Try this problem.

We start with seventy-two boxes. We divide these seventy-two boxes by six. This means: how many groups of six can we make with the seventy-two boxes that we have? Answer: 12.
