An art teacher has 40 paint brushes.she divides them equally among her 4students. She finds8 more brushes and divides these equally among the students, as well. How many brushes does each student receive

Accepted Solution

In the beginning, the teacher evenly distributes the 40 paint brushes to her 4 students. Each student now has 40/4=10 paint brushes.

Later, the teacher finds 8 more brushes and divides them equally to her 4 students again.
The students gain 8/4=2 brushes.

In total, each student receives 10+2=12 brushes.

Hope this helps!
