Haley bought 5 boxes of pencils. She is going to give out the pencils to 10 of her friends. She wants to give each friend the same number of pencils. What does Haley need to know to figure out how many pencils she can give each friend?


We are given the quantities :
+) The number of boxes of pencils
+) The number of her friends

She cannot hand out pencils in boxes to her friends, as she has less boxes of pencils than the number of her friends (assuming they cannot share boxes of pencils.)

Therefore, the quantity we need to know is : The number of pencils in each box of pencils.
