Let yellow square equal two.
00:00:04.630 --> 00:00:10.060
So 10 divided by yellow square equals five.
00:00:11.160 --> 00:00:20.800
What number does the blue triangle equal if 15 divided by three equals blue triangle?
00:00:22.680 --> 00:00:27.650
In both of these examples, our shapes are representing a number.
00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:34.900
By solving our equations, we can find out what number this shape represents.
00:00:36.390 --> 00:00:40.020
10 divided by some number equals five.
00:00:41.650 --> 00:00:45.220
10 divided into two groups equals five.
00:00:46.630 --> 00:00:50.260
Thatâ€™s how we know that the yellow square is equal to two.
00:00:51.970 --> 00:01:00.220
If we want to find out what the value for the blue triangle is, we need to solve 15 divided by three.
00:01:02.100 --> 00:01:09.710
If we put the number 15 into three equal groups, there would be five in each group.
00:01:10.380 --> 00:01:13.880
15 divided by three equals five.
00:01:15.300 --> 00:01:20.330
And that means the blue triangle is equal to five.
