Solution

The correct option is B 6
Total 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.
