The division of whole numbers within parentheses where there is a division refers to the situation in which we must carry out the mathematical operation of dividing a whole number by the result of dividing two elements, that is, by their quotient.

**For example:**

$24 : (6 : 2)$

There are two ways to solve this type of exercises.

The first one will be to open the parentheses and extract the numbers that were inside them.

**That is, in our example:**

$24 : (6 : 2) =$

$24:6\times2=$

$4\times2=8$
