• Why would he go throw 6's to see what the answer is? Why can't he just draw an rectangle and put 8 on the top because it the longest. And put an 6 on the side because it is short . the when he done he can just use multipy them to get the answer.
• But we're not looking for 6 times 8 = ?. In this problem we're looking for 48 divided by 6 = ? We're not looking for the total 48, we're looking for the multiple 8. You have to divide, not multiply.
