  1. This really puzzled my students. When we looked at the hint and then the answer, they realized there was a mistake. 8 divided by 4 is 2, not 6.

  2. Thanks! What I meant to say was 8/4=2 and 6/3=2.

    • That still doesn’t make a true statement, though. Is there something I’m not understanding?

      • I think so. Instead of 8/4=2 and 6/3=2, you could say 8/4=6/3=2. Also, you can think of it as three parts. Each one equals the same thing. Part one is 8/4 or 2, part 2 is 6/3, or 2, and part 3 is 2.

  3. Some parentheses might help

  4. i think it’s 8 4 6 3 2

  5. i think it’s 8 4 6 3 2

  6. 8 divided by 2=4 divided by 2=2

  7. i think it might be 8 4 6 3 2

  8. i did it wrong its 8 divided by 4 = 2 so the answer is 2

  9. Person aka kaleya

    8 ÷ 4 = 6 ÷ 3 = 2

  10. 8 ÷ 4 = 6 ÷ 3 = 2

  11. JaliyahSingleton

    8 ÷ 4 = 6 ÷ 3 = 2

  12. it should be 8/4=2/1=1 because 8/4=6/3=2 and 8/4=2/3=2 cant be true

  13. 8 ÷ 4 = 6 ÷ 3 = 2 is the answer

  14. 8 divide 4=6 divide 3=2

  15. 8/4=6/3=2

  16. Perla Martinez

    8/4=6/3=6

  17. 8/4=6/3=2

    I made an error the first time with 8/4 = 2/1 = 2 but realized I used 2 twice.

  18. lavellas peterson

    8/4=6/3=2
