Here's an easy example:

14
÷
7
=
2
 
                            
÷
              
=
    
 
 divided by   equals 

We start with fourteen boxes. We divide these fourteen boxes by seven. This means: how many groups of seven can we make with the fourteen boxes that we have? Answer: 2.

    


Here's another example:

56
÷
7
=
8
 
                                                                                                                
÷
              
=
                
 
 divided   equals 

We start with fifty-six boxes. We divide these fifty-six boxes by seven. This means: how many groups of seven can we make with the fifty-six boxes that we have? Answer: 8.
