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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   Brown Box   MediumSpringGreen Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Brown Box   MediumSpringGreen 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   SkyBlue Box   BlueViolet Box   LimeGreen Box   MediumVioletRed Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Fuchsia Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     SkyBlue Box   BlueViolet Box   LimeGreen Box   MediumVioletRed Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Fuchsia 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.

            

   SkyBlue Box   BlueViolet Box   LimeGreen Box   MediumVioletRed Box   MediumAquamarine Box   Fuchsia Box

Try this problem.

   Cyan Box   SteelBlue Box   CornflowerBlue Box   MediumTurquoise Box   PowderBlue Box   RosyBrown Box   DeepPink Box   Chocolate Box   Orchid Box   SpringGreen Box   GreenYellow Box   DarkSlateBlue Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     Cyan Box   SteelBlue Box   CornflowerBlue Box   MediumTurquoise Box   PowderBlue Box   RosyBrown Box   DeepPink Box   Chocolate Box   Orchid Box   SpringGreen Box   GreenYellow Box   DarkSlateBlue 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.

                        

   Cyan Box   SteelBlue Box   CornflowerBlue Box   MediumTurquoise Box   PowderBlue Box   RosyBrown Box   DeepPink Box   Chocolate Box   Orchid Box   SpringGreen Box   GreenYellow Box   DarkSlateBlue 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.
