equal groups

multiply

It is called multiplication.

If, by "equal groups", you mean groups of equal things, you get how many in all [the total number] by simply addingthem all together. Sometimes adding is called summation.If, by "equal groups", you mean equal-sized groups of things, you get how many in all by multiplying the number of groups by the number of things in each member group.The number of things in a group is also called its cardinality. Loosely, cardinality is the size of the group, or the number of elements ["things"] in the group.

Four quarters make a dollar. Can you find how many groups of 4 quarters you can make from 92 quarters. Does division come to mind. Try it, you can do it, good luck!

There are three possibilities:-- 7 equal groups, with 3 in each group-- 3 equal groups, with 7 in each group-- 21 equal groups, with 1 in each group

That depends on how many groups you want.
