In the sense of dividing an image like
into the sequence of images
when the block size is 2?

Hmm, if you have no idea how "chop" could help you to write your
"divide" function, what was your motivation for writing "chop" in the
Could it be that the following applies:
If the problem you are trying to solve corresponds to my example above,
it might get you started to think about what you can do by combining tow
applications of "chop" with two applications of "map".
