• what is 6x9x3x5x6x3x2x7
• what it 42 divided by 7?
• 42 divided by 7 is 6 because you might know that 7 x 6 = 42 it is just dividing it by the answer
• Is 50 Divided By 10 Equal five right
• yep that is correct

• On the first problem, Sal is looking for a word problem using the expression 42 divided by 7. 42 is being split equally into those 7 groups.

On the second problem, Sal is splitting 21 into 3 groups.

An easy way to do it is to draw three circles. Give one dot to every circle and count those dots until you each to 21. Count how many dots are in each group, and that's your answer.
