as addie said, the reading through the recipe will tell you how to add the divided ingredients later.
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.
