Riddle: You have 5 cookies to divide equally between 6 children. At the same time, you cannot cut a cookie into 6 equal parts. How would you divide them!
Answer: The riddle says you can’t cut ‘A’ cookie into six equal parts. If you cut EACH cookie into six parts you have 30 pieces of cookies. 30 divided by 5 is six.
Each child gets five equal parts of the cookies. My fourth grader is learning about this in school as we speak.
