Division can be thought of as finding how many groups of the second number can be made from the first number. So dividing 12 ÷ 3, is like counting how many groups of 3 can be made from 12. There are 4 groups, so 12 ÷ 3 = 4. Division can also be thought of as finding how many rows of the second number can be made from the first number. Since 4 rows of 3 can be made from 12, 12 ÷ 3 = 4.
