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
 
    
÷
  
=
    
 
   Wheat Box   Orchid Box  divided by     Red Box Box  equals     Wheat Box   Orchid 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
 
            
÷
  
=
            
 
   ForestGreen Box   LawnGreen Box   Peru Box   Violet Box   DarkBlue Box   DarkTurquoise Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     ForestGreen Box   LawnGreen Box   Peru Box   Violet Box   DarkBlue Box   DarkTurquoise 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.

            

   ForestGreen Box   LawnGreen Box   Peru Box   Violet Box   DarkBlue Box   DarkTurquoise Box

Try this problem.

   SlateBlue Box   DarkOrchid Box   MediumOrchid Box   Magenta Box   Indigo Box   BurlyWood Box   Maroon Box   Brown Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Khaki Box   Empty Box   OliveDrab Box  divided     Red Box Box  equals     SlateBlue Box   DarkOrchid Box   MediumOrchid Box   Magenta Box   Indigo Box   BurlyWood Box   Maroon Box   Brown Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Khaki Box   Empty Box   OliveDrab 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.

                        

   SlateBlue Box   DarkOrchid Box   MediumOrchid Box   Magenta Box   Indigo Box   BurlyWood Box   Maroon Box   Brown Box   MediumSlateBlue Box   Khaki Box   Empty Box   OliveDrab 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.
