Today, we had a desmo activity where we figure out where we put dividers so that every vehicle can have an equal amount of space. We first started off by only estimating and placing them, hoping it is accurate enough. Then we put equations to solve how much space there should be between each divider. This helps me to be more efficient because when I come out with a formula, besides only knowing how to do it on one example, I can know how to calculate the space when I get different widths, the width of dividers etc.

(here is a picture of where I found the formula which works for other example problems)
