No. By definition, 20% is equal to 0.2. Multiplying a number by 0.2 is not equal to dividing it by four. Finding 25% of a number is equal to dividing that number by 4. Finding 20% of a number is equal to dividing that number by 5.

15 or any multiple of 15, including 15 trillion which is greater than the human popluation, but that is maths for you!

Yes, 14 divided by 2 is 7.

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.

If you want to find one tenth of a number, divide it by 10. For example, one tenth of 50 is 5. I teach my students about fraction this way. When you consider one tenth of something, 1/10, think of the denominator of the fraction as the number of equal groups you have to divide a particular number into. Then think of the numerator of the fraction as the number of those equal groups you are counting up. Another example: to find 3/10 of 50, divide 50 into ten equal groups of 5 each. Then count three of them: 5 + 5 + 5 = 15. 3/10 of 50 is 15.
