Dear teachers,

Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

Merkel gets down to business in Russia

I shall get down to this problem.

Let's get down to facts.

When you get down to it there's not much difference between the two.

Get down to peeling potatoes!

We must get down to one’s work!

get down to = give one's attention to

Thanks for your efforts.

Regards,

V.
