Actually, if you read through the recipe you might find that you need to add 3 cups twice or 4 cups once and 1 cup twice. I'd read through the recipe first. You likely don't have to have six one cup quantities at the ready.

"Divided" just means it's not added in all at once.

For a few months I was tutoring a 4th grader. If I only taught him one thing it was to read over the test, go back and answer all the question you absolutely know the answer. Then the ones you can figure out, then, finally, puzzle over the ones you don't know. Recipe reading is much like that.

well, yeah, i was being very literal since the confusion was about whether divided meant a treatment of the ingredient besides a measure.

Exactly! It means "Don't add this all at once because you'll be adding portions in two or more stages of the recipe," and "Warning: if you add this all at once you'll be making a big mistake!"
