I have have 16 cookies and I shared it with 5 friends. How much cookies I have left Answer:3R 1


13 boys were divided into two groups. You can't split two boys in half such as 6 1/2, so you leave the one boy out and he waits as a substitute. Or you could say: 13 boys are divided into two teams. You can't split two boys in half to have 6 1/2 on each team, so there would be 6 boys on one team and 7 on the other. Hope this helped!
