What is the ablative case and when do I use it?

A noun in the ablative case means 'by, with or from' the noun (for example puellis - by, with or from the girls).

This can be used in a sentence such as 'the boys went to a party with the girls'.  Rather than being 3 words as it is in English, this whole sense is portrayed thhrough one Latin word!
