Re: Division Pageshi atran, I suppose if, say, D = 20 miles and T = 5 hours, you could think of dividing 20 into 5 equal groups with 4 mph in each, but then would have to involve making groups of 4mph until 20 is reached. It just doesn't seem to work for most of the maths I know. And which classification is involved here: In number theory, division is defined as the reverse of multiplication. As multiplication is commutative ( ab = ba ) I think all division of type 1 can be rewritten as division of type 2. Hence, all problems can be done either way.

Re: Division PagesI managed to get some good academic qualifications in maths without them, but I did in fact see a website after reading the above
