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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   Tan Box   CadetBlue Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Tan Box   CadetBlue 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   CornflowerBlue Box   Cyan Box   SeaGreen Box   HotPink Box   DodgerBlue Box   DarkSlateBlue Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     CornflowerBlue Box   Cyan Box   SeaGreen Box   HotPink Box   DodgerBlue Box   DarkSlateBlue 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.

            

   CornflowerBlue Box   Cyan Box   SeaGreen Box   HotPink Box   DodgerBlue Box   DarkSlateBlue Box

Try this problem.

   YellowGreen Box   SpringGreen Box   MediumAquamarine Box   MediumOrchid Box   Indigo Box   PowderBlue Box   SlateBlue Box   SkyBlue Box   ForestGreen Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   MediumTurquoise Box   Peru Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     YellowGreen Box   SpringGreen Box   MediumAquamarine Box   MediumOrchid Box   Indigo Box   PowderBlue Box   SlateBlue Box   SkyBlue Box   ForestGreen Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   MediumTurquoise Box   Peru 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.

                        

   YellowGreen Box   SpringGreen Box   MediumAquamarine Box   MediumOrchid Box   Indigo Box   PowderBlue Box   SlateBlue Box   SkyBlue Box   ForestGreen Box   DarkSeaGreen Box   MediumTurquoise Box   Peru 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.
