If there are 216 students awaiting diving instruction and there are 12 instructors to give that instruction; presuming all the students are at the same level and the instructors are all qualified to instruct at the same level and all other factors being equal; then, we will split the students equally among the instructors:

`216 divide 12 = 18`

This means that  each instructor will instruct 18 of the students each. 

Ans:

216 diving students to 12 instructors = 18 students per instructor.

If there are 216 diving students and 12 instructors, we know that theses students will have to be divided up between each instructor, so you set up the problem like this:

216 / 12 to get how many of each student will each instructor have:

216/12 = 18

so 18 students per instructor.

From 216 diving students and 12 instructors, how many students will be allocated to each instructor?

Diving students = 216

Instructors = 12

Students allocated to each instructor = ?

Solution:-

The equation that can be formed in this is;

Total number of diving students / Total number of instructors = Students                                                                                                         allocated

216 / 12 = 18 students per instructor....

Hence the answer is 18 that is each instructor will get 18 students .....

Divide the number of students by the number of instructors.

216 students `-:`  12 instructors = 18 students per instructor

From 216 diving students and 12 instructors, how many students will be allocated to each instructor?

In order for all the students to be distributed evenly between the 12 teachers, you will have to divide the 216 students by 12. This way each teacher will have the same number of students, if it divides evenly. 

216 students / 12 teachers = 18 students per teacher

It's very simple all you have to do is divide 216 i.e number of students, by 12 i.e instructors, with this we will get the number of students each instructor will teach,

216/12 = 18 diving students per instructor.
