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



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.
