• Here Is The First Question: Sydney Has 10 Friends, Sydney Has 340 pokemon, And She Wants To Find A Way To Give The Same Amount To Her Friends. What Does Sydney Need To Do? Explain.
• Divide 340 mons by 10 friends. You get 34 mons per friend.
340 / 10 = 34

To prove: multiply 10 friends by 34 mons that each friend now owns.
34 * 10 = 340
You get the same amount (340) of mons that Sydney had before splitting them up for her friends.
