Solution

## The correct option is B 6Total number of candies = 24 Total number of friends = 4 We need to divide 24 by 4. Let us use repeated subtraction to find the answer. 24 - 4 = 20 20 - 4 = 16 16 - 4 = 12 12 - 4 = 8 8 - 4 = 4 4 - 4 = 0 We are subtracting 4 six times from 24 to get 0. So, 24 divided by 4 is equal to 6. Thus, each friend will get 6 candies.
