How many ways can we share 12 into equal groups?


Mr Muddles our maths monkey set the children a mathematical challenge to help him share his banana’s fairly.  How many different ways could the children find to share 12  into equal groups?  

They discovered that 12 could be shared into equal groups of 2, 3, 4 and 6.

Mr Muddle’s favourite number is 5.  Can we make equal groups of 5?
