Basic Division Lesson 1: Number 1

Welcome to Basic Division. In this unit, you will learn how to divide numbers from one to twelve and also zero. FoxyMath wishes you success!

Here's an easy example:

2
÷
1
=
2
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   SpringGreen Box   MidnightBlue Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     SpringGreen Box   MidnightBlue Box

We start with two boxes. We divide these two boxes by one. This means: how many groups of one can we make with the two boxes that we have? Answer: 2.

    


Here's another example:

6
÷
1
=
6
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   MediumSlateBlue Box   Fuchsia Box   Chartreuse Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Brown Box   Gold Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     MediumSlateBlue Box   Fuchsia Box   Chartreuse Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Brown Box   Gold Box

We start with six boxes. We divide these six boxes by one. This means: how many groups of one can we make with the six boxes that we have? Answer: 6.

            

   MediumSlateBlue Box   Fuchsia Box   Chartreuse Box   DarkOliveGreen Box   Brown Box   Gold Box

Try this problem.

   BlueViolet Box   DarkOrchid Box   Goldenrod Box   Aqua Box   Turquoise Box   CadetBlue Box   Green Box   OliveDrab Box   CornflowerBlue Box   HotPink Box   MediumVioletRed Box   RosyBrown Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     BlueViolet Box   DarkOrchid Box   Goldenrod Box   Aqua Box   Turquoise Box   CadetBlue Box   Green Box   OliveDrab Box   CornflowerBlue Box   HotPink Box   MediumVioletRed Box   RosyBrown Box

We start with twelve boxes. We divide these twelve boxes by one. This means: how many groups of one can we make with the twelve boxes that we have? Answer: 12.

                        

   BlueViolet Box   DarkOrchid Box   Goldenrod Box   Aqua Box   Turquoise Box   CadetBlue Box   Green Box   OliveDrab Box   CornflowerBlue Box   HotPink Box   MediumVioletRed Box   RosyBrown Box

In order to do basic division, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! For this lesson, there is only one equation to learn:

  1 ÷ 1 =   1
  2 ÷ 1 =   2
  3 ÷ 1 =   3
  4 ÷ 1 =   4
  5 ÷ 1 =   5
  6 ÷ 1 =   6
  7 ÷ 1 =   7
  8 ÷ 1 =   8
  9 ÷ 1 =   9
10 ÷ 1 = 10
11 ÷ 1 = 11
12 ÷ 1 = 12

As we see, any number divided by one is the number itself.
