Answer:

Have a look:

Explanation:

The division is a way of forming, starting from a certain fixed quantity, smaller groups all made up of the same number of elements.
In this case you have the big amount #52# and you need to know how many smaller groups you can make, each one containing #8# elements.

It is like to have drawers:
you have #52# shirts and in each drawer fits only #8# of them; how many drawers can we fill completely?
We can see that for sure we can fill #6# drawers; in fact we will use #6xx8=48# shirts.
There will be #4# shirts left! They will not be able to fill the seventh drawer so we keep them out and call them the remainder!
So basically we get:
#52:8=6#
with a remainder of #4#
