You only take one bag with you for all the candy you collect, and when you are done you have 58 pieces of candy. You want to make sure everyone gets the same amount, so you divide: ____ 4| 58 Work this problem to find out how much candy each person gets. If you have a remainder, you might need to divide a piece of candy in half. Hope that helps! -Doctor Betsy, The Geometry Forum
