Solution

## The correct option is A 21Total number of candies = 84 Number of friends = 4 So, to find the number of candies each of them gets, we have to divide 84 by 4. Let's use repeated subtraction to find the answer. From the multiplication table of 4, we know that 4 × 10 = 40. 10+10+1 484 −40–––2 44−40––– 4 −4– 0Thus, 84 ÷ 4 = 10 + 10 + 1 =21 Thus, each friend will get 21 candies.
