If there are six apples, and two people to split the apples evenly across so both get an equal amount of apples, then:

\(n=\frac{a}{p}\)

Where n is the number of apples each person gets, a is the total amount of apples, and p is the total amount of people.

Substituting the numbers in gives:

\(n=\frac{6}{2} = 3\)

n is equal to three, so each person should receive three apples each.
