I'm assuming this is for electricity, so around a circuit there is a current. Current is the rate of flow of charge. The charge within a circuit comes from the electrons which has a charge of 1.6x10-19C. Therefore the num of electrons would have to be the charge around the current divided by the charge of an electron. Hopefully this makes sense

Each electron carries an amount of charge. You know the total amount of charge and you want the number of electrons. So you divide by the amount of charge each electron carries.

Each bucket carries an amount of water. You know the total amount of water and want the number of buckets. So you divide by the amount of water each bucket carries.

Does that make sense?
