Let's see what's really going on when we divide one number into another number.

6/3=

We start with 6 triangles:

6 triangles

We want to see how many chunks of 3 we can make out of 6 things!

We can divide 6 things into 2 chunks of 3.

6 triangles split into two sets of three triangles

6/3=2


Now, let's see how many times 2 will go into 6.

6/2=

Start with 6 squares:

6 squares

We want to see how many chunks of 2 we can make out of 6 things!

We can divide 6 things into 3 chunks of 2.

6 squares spit into three sets of two squares

6/2=3
