# Station 11**Division**

Here’s an example of a division problem: Compute $276 \div 12$.

And here’s a horrible way to solve it: *Draw a picture of $276$ dots on a page and then circle groups of twelve dots. You will see, after about an hour, that there are $23$ groups of twelve in a picture of $276$.*

Here’s a great way to solve it: *Draw a picture of $276$ dots in a $1 \leftarrow 10$ machine and just see right away that there are $23$ groups of twelve in it!*

Read and play on to see how we can do this!
